Life and Works

Side-by-side study of an author’s work along with her life events. Reaching new, creative interpretations, this approach underlines the living creator at the burning heart of every creative process, thus breaking the reader/author barrier. It highlights the commonalities of life experiences and personal sensibilities, which may bring the student to relativise the idol status of classical authors, and find in her very life experiences the sufficient material and relevance for her own creative ambitions.

Examples :
Nietzsche : Suffering and Thought
Almodovar, From Life to Screen
