  • Abstract: The Louvre is the site of a threefold challenge in Paul d’Ivoi’s novel Jean Fanfare (1897): pedagogical (a question of portraying it in a pleasing way for an adolescent audience); narrative (how to release a girl locked in a statue exhibited at the museum?); poetic (how to exploit the nineteenth-century fantastic to usher readers into the realm of modern museography?). From this threefold well of inspiration is born a thrilling narrative, which perhaps foreshadows Cocteau’s poetic imagination.
