Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clezio

Desert FR

€10,50

Avec Désert - prix Renaudot en 1980 - Le Clézio, écrivain discret, presque secret, accède à une reconnaissance enthousiaste du public. Depuis, sa notoriété ne s'est pas démentie au fil d'une production pourtant singulière, tant par la forme qui rompt avec le formalisme du roman que par les thèmes toujours en marge d'un monde qui avance irrémédiablement. Nourris au sein de la nature vierge, de la mer ou des déserts, les personnages de Le Clézio, abreuvés de légendes intimes ou porteurs de l'histoire des peuples, errent inlassablement sur les chemins du retour. La certitude de l'appartenance, le souvenir des paysages perdus, constituent les forces vitales que ne peuvent ébranler la vulgarité des hommes ou l'emprise de la ville. Telle Lalla, arrivée dans les quartiers sordides de Marseille comme un navire échoué, mais avec la lumière du désert dans les yeux et le sang des guerriers du Rio de Oro dans les veines. Alors, si la force de l'identité rend tout exil cruel, elle tient aussi lieu d'espoir.
