Raspunsurile lui David Bowie la intrebarile din celebrul chestionar al lui Proust

Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on Google+

In anii 1880, cu mult inainte de a fi numit unul dintre cei mai mari scriitori din literatura universala, Marcel Proust a raspuns la intrebarile unui chestionar care i-a fost oferit de prietena lui Antoinette, fiica presedintelui Frantei de atunci.

Chestionarul reda cu acuratete testele moderne din prezent si avea ca obiectiv dezvaluirea gusturilor, aspiratiilor si sensibilitatilor celui intervievat.

Manuscrisul lui Proust a fost descoperit abia in 1924, la 2 ani dupa moartea acestuia.

Ani mai tarziu, in 1970, gazda de televiziune Bernard Pivot a explorat chestionarul si l-a privit ca pe o buna oportunitate de a-si intreba invitatii din emisiunile sale.

Anul 1993 este si cel in care Vanity Fair a resuscitat chestionarul si a realizat o rubrica in care diferite personalitati au raspuns la intrebarile lui Proust.
