Grand prix de la Critique littéraire

The grand prix de la Critique littéraire was created in 1948 by Robert André. It is awarded each year by the French PEN club to a literary essay. Chaired by Joël Schmidt [fr], its jury is now made up of Jean Blot, Jean-Luc Despax, Jean-Claude Lamy, Daniel Leuwers, Jean Orizet [fr], Laurence Paton (general secretary), Antoine Spire [fr] and Patrick Tudoret [fr]. Since its creation, it has rewarded many leading authors and intends to promote a literary criticism of quality and, quite simply, literature.
