Maison des Mémoires Joe-Bousquet

Paralysed following an injury suffered in 1918 Joe Bousquet (1897 - 1950) lived as a recluse in this house where he wrote his strange and challenging works, and corresponded with his writer friends (Aragon, Gide, Michaux, Valéry, Éluard, Ernst...). It was here that he founded along with other local intellectuals Les Cahiers du Sud, a review of Languedoc literature.
