The Bibliothèque russe et slave links to scads of works both in the original and in French translation, and I have bookmarked it with alacrity. Many thanks to Erik McDonald, from whose XIX век post I got the link!

As lagniappe, a MetaFilter post with links to brief videos of the “Avez-vous déjà vu?” series. They’re silly and lots of fun, and you don’t need much French to enjoy them. To get you started: Avez-Vous Déjà Vu ..? – Des Moutons Qui Organisent un Pique-Nique.


  1. I wish I could understand french to understand those videos :(, but i just can speak english and spanish.
    I like this, I wish there would be an english version.

  2. I spent way too much of yesterday afternoon watching those. Also, I think that was the first Language Hat link I forwarded on to my 15-year-old sister.
