Abstract

Behind the apparent banality of a minimalist style, the Quebecois writer Louis Gauthier seems to conceal the ambitious project of deconstructing the stereotyped models on which the travel literature has been founded. That is the reason why his tetralogy, entitles "Voyage en Inde avec un grand détour", tells about the egocentric hero's journey through different epochs and continents, which becomes possible only through literature.
Sous l'apparente banalité d'une écriture minimaliste, l'écrivain québécois Louis Gauthier semble cacher le projet de déconstruire les modèles stéréotypés sur lesquels s'est batie la littérature viatique au fil des siècles. C'est pourquoi sa quadrilogie - Voyage en Inde avec un grand détour -, tout en démentant le récit de voyage issu de la tradition, raconte le périple d'un héros égocentrique qui, en proie à ses doutes et à ses déboires sentimentales, traverse époques et continents par le seul biais de la littérature.
