Rene Char back in the Paris bookstores

Rene Char seems to be back in intellectual favor in France, after what seemed to be a long period of decline after his death in the late 1980s. The National Library is doing an exhibition on the centenary of his birth, and new reprintings of his books are back in the bookstores, which was not true even a year ago. I picked up some works that I did not already have, and a couple of cheap school edition copies of his Leaves of Hypnos.
