Michel Tournier et le mythe de l'androgyne : entre philosophie et religion

Benedetta Carnali
2018 Çédille: Revista de Estudios Franceses  
The work of Michel Tournier is imbued with his Christian heritage. His belonging to this aspect of Western culture becomes visible through his adaptations of biblical subjects, such as that of the myth of Adam, the androgynous being. This perception of the first man in Tournier's work confirms his belonging to a specific cultural heritage, which lies between Greek philosophy and Christian religion. This cultural context is updated by the author via the literary device of rewriting.
