Une certaine ingénuité
Michel Houellebecq

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: L’Unité de l’œuvre de Michel Houellebecq
  • Author: Dupuy (Valérie)
  • Abstract: Houellebecq’s work can be compared to Montesquieu’s Lettres persanes since it frequently assigns the job of looking at society to an outside character who, as a foreigner or a tourist, paints an objective, lucid and disturbing picture. This picture is often humorous and impervious to ready-made discourses, be they commercial, literary or conventional.
