  2. Audio tour Summary

    This walk, which traces the footsteps of the British writer Christine Brooke-Rose, consists of 7 stops. It starts at the Avenue Leon Mahillon and ends at square Ambiorix. At each stop postdoctoral researcher Dr Hannah Van Hove gives some information regarding the location and the life and work of Brooke-Rose.

    Brooke-Rose published 16 novels, several collections of essays and criticism, a short story collection and poems during her life. In her experimental novels, she often utilized a particular linguistic constraint, for example, refusing to use the word 'I' in her autobiographical works of fiction, while addressing postmodern themes of text and identity with humor and curiosity.

    Despite her prolific output, she remained little known and when she died in 2012, the British newspaper the Guardian published an obituary entitled: 'Christine Brooke-Rose, the great British experimentalist you’ve never heard of’.
