La "maison des champs", Pierre Corneille 's country house. 1608 . He is a well known French dramatist (1606-1684 ) born in Rouen, he wrote : Le Cid, (1656) "Horace" and " Cinna"(1639) These plays are part of our French litterature courses during our scholarship. Most of us have in mind a famous monolog of one of his drama. Before , this house had a very big land around it , but now in fact , it remains just a little piece that you can see on the pictures. He inherited this house from his father , as being the eldest child of a family of seven.You can see a little medieval garden ,with forgotten vegetables. The little thatch house was the place they baked the bread. The orchard and this beautiful house which is not far from LA BOUILLE in my previous post. This is the first part of " The writers road of Normandy ". Next time, later on , i will show you Victor Hugo's house.
Keep an eye on my blog , there will soon have a giveaway for my birthday!!!
