Maria (Roman) By Christophe Sims
eBook (PDF): $8.31
Le narrateur est un ange. Ou un marin. Ou un écrivain. C’est ce qu’il dit. Il se déplace sans cesse. Un jour, dans une ville de soleil, il rencontre une ombre. Commence... More > alors une série de conversations, d’échanges qui prennent pour alibi le roman que le narrateur prétend être en train d’écrire. Ces conversations nouent le récit du narrateur avec ses questionnements sur le mystère de l’écriture, et l’analogie qu’il en fait avec celui des origines, une vaste tresse qui symbolise la complexité de l’être au monde. Tout s’enlace. On saute d’un lieu à un autre, d’une époque à une autre : c‘est facile quand on est un ange (ou un écrivain). La linéarité se dissout. Petit à petit émerge cependant une double cohérence et une évidence : cohérence de l’existence, même si incompréhensible en soi et de l’œuvre en construction. L’évidence narrative n’apparaîtra au grand jour qu’à la fin.< Less
