Read & Download Le Procès verbal J.M.G. Le Clézio ☆ 9 characters Le Procès verbal Summary ´ 109 O feature the twenty three year old discovery that was rocking Paris literary circles What is The Interrogation Most likely a myth without distinct delineations A very solitary young man Adam Pollo perhaps the first man perhaps the last has a very remarkable interior adventure He concentrates and he discovers ways of being ways of seeing He enters into animals into a tree He has no business no distractions; he is at the complete disposal of life All of life that is except the society of The Nobel for Le Clezio makes me think that the Swedish Academy must be like a legislative body it produces odd compromises that are no one s first choice My only previous experience with Le Clezio was a rather gauzy commentary on the conuest of Mexico a topic about which much has already been written with great specificity So I approached the Investigation with curiosity and a dash of hope especially since it took the Renaudot Prize The main character Adam Pollo does not know if he has been released from the Army or the mental hospital Le Clezio settles that point during the narrative Pollo seems detached from the norms of society has occasional outbursts some of them violent His mind focuses on extraneous minutiae Near the beginning Pollo commits what can only be described as rape but the victim has no reaction But he seems rootless and detached There are interesting moments toward the end when Le Clezio does some interesting things with form recording a psychiatric evaluation and introducing mock ups of newspapers into the text But in the end Pollo and his world seem not so much surreal as deliberately unreal Perhaps this is all a reflection of Pollo s confused mind But the narrative thread is weak to start with and can t stand that strain I don t mind unreliable narrators but unreliable writers leave me cold
