Un autre genre d’antimémoires: Mémoire et oubli chez Romain Gary

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

One of the main characteristics of Romain Gary is the constant attempt to transgress the boundaries between life and fiction. His autobiographic texts are as a rule highly fictitious. On the other hand, in real life, he tried to live out a fiction written for him by his mother and, later on, by himself. The ambivalence of the relation between fiction and truth characterizes all of his books, but it is particularly interesting in his attempts at the autobiographical genre where it reveals a quite original understanding of human identity, and the dialectics of memory and forgetting
