Michel Houellebecq : le pathétique en lisière

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: L’Unité de l’œuvre de Michel Houellebecq
  • Author: Novak-Lechevalier (Agathe)
  • Abstract: Although it sometimes seems banished from his novels, pathos constitutes a central theme and a crucial question in Houellebecq’s work. Through this essential ambiguity, pathos is a central tool in the novelist’s strategy : the paradoxical use he makes of it allows him to efficiently disrupt the moral value system. It also enables him to assemble a community of readers and, by means of his novels, restore the vanishing links between humans.
