John Lemoinne

Foreigners in Paris: The English and the Germans


In "Germans in Paris," Louis Bamberger first confronts the difficulty in studying a foreign population: how to identify them. That accomplished, he investigates German contributions to French culture. Also: how long does it take Paris to corrupt a nice German girl?

In "The English in Paris," John Lemoinne examines their tendency to assimilation. He contrasts the openness of French culture to the conservatism of English culture, as well as the political openness of the English in comparison with the French.

Publication History

In 1867, over nine million people visited the International Exposition in Paris. The city had just been dramatically modernized by Haussmann under Napoleon III, and the massive tome Paris Guide was commissioned to mark the occasion, unofficially edited by Victor Hugo and collecting texts by "the most important writers and artists in France." In Paris for Outsiders and Foreigners in Paris: The English and the Germans, Readux presents a selection of essays from Paris Guide that investigate the status of outsiders in Paris — be they country folk, foreigners, or merely outsiders in spirit.
