Les yeux vivants : suivi de l'essai Écrire la mort

Abstract: In the beginning, we find Death walking around the world, completing her unappreciated task by herself. By the end, she has the help of her servant on Earth, the one the Bretons call l’Ankou. Between these two stories, there is a whole world – trivial, beautiful or ugly, but real – inhabited by people whose main similarity is that they can, and one day will, die. I have tried to write short stories that explore the lives of these people who Death observes, touches or even, sometimes, forgets. The essay that accompanies my creation attempts to address the challenges awaiting someone who wants to write about death, which we always look at with living eyes. Along with discussing my own stories, I also study death’s subtle presence in the work of Jules Supervielle and Roch Carrier. It is their way of writing that I seek to examine in the reflective portion of my project.
