The ALMé digital library

Archives Littéraires de la Modernité, digital library of manuscripts.


The Archives Littéraires de la Modernité include manuscripts of four authors from the BLJD entered into the public domain: Verlaine, Mallarmé, Apollinaire, Jarry, but also those of Robert Desnos, which are still protected. Iconographic archives, personal papers, objects, and some printed matter are also included. However, it is necessary to note that this list is not exhaustive.


The coherence and variety of the collection offer multiple utilisations. These collections aim in particular to facilitate the remote work of an international community of researchers. Through the testimonial value and emotional charge of these literary manuscripts, a wider public is also invited to penetrate the mysteries of creation and to have a better taste of the great texts of modern literature.


Even if some authors represented on ALMé are public domain, it is still necessary to read the legal notices related to any public or private reutilization of ALMé’s digital files.
