Stéphane Lambert

Poet, novelist, and essayist Stéphane Lambert was born in Brussels in 1974.  His essay L’adieu au paysage: Les nymphéas de Claude Monet (Farewell to the Countryside: Claude Monet’s Water Lilies, 2008) was extremely well-reviewed and was read at the Musée de l’Orangerie and at the Grand Palais as part of the Monet retrospective. He also recorded a two-part program on Monet and Spilliaert for French public radio and published a book of interviews with the director, Claude Régy (Dans le désordre [In Disarray]), which was awarded the prize for the best book on theater in 2012.  In 2011 he published a widely noted essay on the painter Mark Rothko (Mark Rothko, rêver de ne pas être [Mark Rothko: Dreaming of Not Being, 2014]).  His autobiographical narrative, Mon corps mis à nu [My Body Laid Bare], was shortlisted for the foremost Belgian literary prize in 2013.  Desire, the body, the family, death, the chaos of the contemporary world, and the act of creation are the themes that run through his work.  Since February 2014 he has directed the Francophone programs at Passa Porta, the international literary center in Brussels.
