Architectures et jardins-palimpsestes chez Jean-Paul Goux

Abstract : The novels of Jean-Paul Goux focus one after another on the different implications of the act of inhabiting – philosophical, existential, political and artistic implications. The subject arises for him in the eighties, which are the main turning point in his reflection and work. With his novel The Gardens of Morgante, published in 1989, he invents a new kind of storytelling, in which voices do not only answer one another, but also interact and quote one another. At first the reader feels lost in a text built on the principle of anamorphosis, using a distended syntax. He nevertheless reaches, now and again, a kind of bliss, as he realises that he is himself inhabiting a prose and an enclosed space in which Time has laid itself down in strata.
