  • Théâtre/Roman by Louis Aragon

    By Louis Aragon

    "Qu'on entende bien que, lorsque je dis le théâtre, le théâtre est le nom que je donne au lieu intérieur en moi où je situe mes songes et mes mensonges."

    Tout le roman est un jeu de masques, de miroirs, qui s'accomplit secrètement dans ce théâtre de mots et donne, selon l'expression d'Aragon, une leçon de ténèbres.

    Ainsi Aragon ouvre ce théâtre intérieur que l'homme est à lui-même et dans lequel il remet ses rêves en scènes. Longtemps après le livre refermé l. a. lecture en soi se poursuit. los angeles quête de cette œuvre si libre et si grave fait lever les photographs et les mondes les plus enfouis, donnant de l'existence une représentation crépusculaire à laquelle on ne peut s'arracher.

    Théâtre/Roman est un livre essentiel qui veut éclairer de l'intérieur l. a. totalité de l'œuvre d'Aragon.
