Une nausée devant la création
Choix des Élues de Jean Giraudoux

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: Roman mystique, mystiques romanesques aux xxe et xxie siècles
  • Author: Camet (Sylvie)
  • Abstract: In his latest novel, Choice of the Elect (1939), J. Giraudoux presents the journey of a woman trying to escape domestic servitude, despite being presented as a perfect wife and mother. She seeks to approach a state of ecstasy, but if the images borrow from the register of religion, the ultimate failure of the heroine is understood as the sign of the vanity of this aspiration to holiness; moreover, it is shown as absurd in a world threatened by the impending war.
