Hervé Guibert: Voices of the Self
Liverpool University Press

This chapter first examines L'Homme blessé, which served as Guibert's point of departure in his quest towards the novel. It links this work with ‘Les escarpins rouges’, which tells the story of the writing of L'Homme blessé and provides important information about the process of literary creation. The discussion then turns to Les Lubies d'Arthur, the first of Guibert's books to bear the subtitle ‘roman’ (‘novel’). Next, the texts in La Piqûre d'amour et autres texts suivi de La chair fraîche are considered to see if their analysis reflects the writer's preoccupations and tallies with the Guibertian thematic. The chapter also asks whether Le Seul Visage and Lettres d'Égypte lead Guibert away from the novel or whether they share the same perspective as the other books.

Keywords:   Hervé Guibert, L'Homme blessé, Les escarpins rouges, Les Lubies d'Arthur, La Piqûre d'amour
