This chapter examines Hervé Guibert's youthful works. Specifically, it looks at the texts from the book, La Mort propaganda (published in 1977 and reissued in 1991), which consists of twelve sections written over a period of eight years. The chapter begins each section with a brief summary of the texts discussed and concentrates above all on the genre used by Guibert to map out the route that will in due course lead him to inscribe the self. The themes of the different texts are analyzed in the light of the statements to be found on the back cover of the 1977 edition but not reprinted in 1991.
