O romance mítico de Michel Tournier

By Guacira Marcondes Machado


Michel Tournier had a solid background in Philosophy and studied Ethnography with Lévi-Strauss. All this background was signifi cant in his creative process because, connecting literature and ethnographic research, he gives centrality to myth. Consequently, his work is deep and original: following ethnography and psychoanalysis, he revisits some forgotten myths that present exemplary existential situations that throw some light on the most secret and obscure human aspirations. Keywords: Michel Tournier. Myth. Narrative. Poetry. French literature.Michel Tournier, de formação fi losófi ca, estudou etnografi a sob a orientação de Lévi-Strauss. Esse fato foi decisivo para seu processo criador pois, unindo literatura e pesquisa etnográfi ca, ele coloca o mito no centro desse processo. Daí decorrem a profundidade e a originalidade de sua obra: na esteira da etnografi a e da psicanálise, ele retoma alguns mitos esquecidos, que propõem situações existenciais exemplares, para, desse modo, lançar luz sobre as mais secretas e obscuras aspirações humanas neles contidas.
