News in Three Lines
Selections from Félix Fénéon's anonymous daily column for Le Matin, 1906
Apr 15, 2020
In 1906, Félix Fénéon wrote the anonymous column “Nouvelles en trois lignes” (News in Three Lines) for the Parisian newspaper Le Matin. Distilling true stories into a few lines, Fénéon reported sensational news, from murders and suicides to political protests and workers’ demonstrations. Fénéon's sardonic humor and wit create a picture of violence, scandal, and unrest in early-20th-century France.
