Welcome to my personal cybercarnet.
I will try to feed it as regularly as possible by publishing texts of my invention, in free access for a part and with a subscription condition for the other part. I also hope it will be open to third party interventions, as long as coherence manifests itself through encounters or thought.
I am not convinced of the powers of the Internet in terms of literary transmission: the intimacy between the interface and the user seems to be restricted, and networking hinders concentration. Once these difficulties have been overcome, is it still necessary to overcome a cultural blockage or a psychomotor limit? I don’t know.
My skepticism towards the editorial method—at least as practiced in France today—is not foreign to my approach. Neither is my taste for digital exploration.
In any case, the creation of this space on the web is intended to support and push my texts towards the public. I won’t give the visitor the possibility to comment on the posts as on connected social networks, but I will post hyperlinks on these networks.
What more can I say?
My literary ideal is a kind of total book, a hybrid capable of unfolding the range of speech, from the primal cry to the most constructed articulated language: poetry, fiction, theory… Everything should fit. The novel form, isomorphic to life, seems to be the only one capable of converging towards this model, through the skillful assembly within the same object of the multiple modes of expression of human thought.
Such an ideal cannot be pursued here. This web notebook is conceived as a laboratory. Written fragments will be divided into distinct categories and various labels in order to allow everyone to orient themselves according to their taste, a bit like in a market place.
I therefore leave you to your clicks towards short readings that I hope will be as beautiful and disturbing as fluid and tonic.
Enjoy your visit.
