I would have probably given this a two-star rating until I read the last two thirds of it. A real lovely read towards the end, reflective of the unrestrained desire and ambition that was prevalent throughout the best pockets of the French student movements in the 60s, an exercising of the truly revolutionary cell within yourself that everyone is capable of.

"Art is dead, but the student is a necrophiliac".

Begins with very attractive, pleasing, energetic critique of student life and then falls into being a review of other student movements and in my opinnion looses the sharpness it had in the frist chapter. Still, an intriguing piece that apparently made history.

This piece is cryptic and witty, and the problem that it identifies has evolved with time.

Publie en 1966 aux frais de l'Universite de Strasbourg (vidant aux passages les caisses de l'association des etudiants), ce brulot est premonitoire des revoltes de Mai 1968. Un document historique.
