Remembering Louis-Ferdinand Céline:
May 27, 1894–July 1, 1961

celine6140 words

Louis-Ferdinand Céline was the pen name of French novelist, essayist, and physician Louis-Ferdinand-Auguste Destouches, who was born on this day in 1894. Céline is one of the giants of 20th-century literature. And, like Ezra Pound and so many other great writers of the last century, he was an open and unapologetic racial nationalist. For more on Céline, see the following works on this website: 

The best online resource about Céline is Le Petit Célinien,

    Dr. Johnson, I see that you’ve opened some essays to comment again. This means that you, I suppose, are having to do the moderation which I know takes considerable time. And this is in addition to your own research and writing, managing the book site, as well as your hosting of CC audio conservations. I really wonder how you manage to do all of this? I realize that the stock answer would be “dedication.” But it would be an inspiration to me and I think for others, to know more particulars about how you structure your day…like what do you not do, indulge in, listen to, or watch, that frees up the hours for your CC work?

    For myself, I have cut the cord of commercial TV and it has been liberating. No more news from any major network. Now I scan and read the news stories that I choose to know about without having to be subjected to all the filler in between those stories.

    I just feel the ominous threat of Venner’s last plea is the clarion call that we are running out of time and that all of us need to have examples of leaders like you that in some way, we can emulate in our daily comings and goings.
