la-boheme

anonymous asked:

Okay so my 3 year old niece can sing part of Schuyler Sisters and also some of My Shot and yeah it's the cutest. Also accidentally taught her the "SOUTHERN MOTHERFUCKING DEMOCRATIC REPUBLICANS" part of Washington on your side so my sister hates me for that, but whatever. She also hums Candy Store and tries her best at Seasons of Love and La Vie Boheme because I'm signing/humming them constantly.

Henri Murger (27 March 1822 – 28 January 1861) 

French novelist and poet.

He is chiefly distinguished as the author of Scènes de la vie de bohème, from his own experiences as a desperately poor writer living in a Parisian attic, and member of a loose club of friends who called themselves “the water drinkers” (because they were too poor to afford wine). The book is the basis for the opera La bohème (Puccini). (Wikipedia)

From our stacks: Frontispiece “Henri Murger” and illustration “Watering the flowers” and “The revelry” from The Bohemians of the Latin Quarter (Scènes de la vie de bohême) By Henri Murger. Illustrated by Montader. Paris, London and New York: Société des Beaux-Arts, 1912.
