Inspiré de Defoe, Michel Tournier exploite l'idée de Robinson, personnage civilisé, maître qui montre et ordonne. Mais, avec l'explosion de la grotte, synonyme d'épanouissement, de révolte, le lecteur assiste à la découverte, à l'éclosion de Vendredi. L'étude des personnages, leurs comportements, leurs agissements décrivent avec finesse tout un processus de relations humaines et ses revirements. L'auteur dénonce clairement l'exploitation de l'homme. Un texte riche qui dépasse souvent

Edition originale, Gallimard, 1980. Tenant du "naturalisme mystique", Michel Tournier, philosophe-écrivain, serait-il devenu un romancier chrétien? Aux trois Rois mages traditionnels qu'il accompagne dans la "recherche du salut qui leur est propre" (J. Piatier), Tournier a ajouté un mage de son invention - Taor - pour mieux scruter les balbutiements de la religion chrétienne par le biais de thèmes chers à l'auteur: la nourriture, la pédophilie et le "sadisme ogrien" (D. Fernandez). Un roman très composite, riche, avec des fléchissements, qui allie l'encyclopédique au rocambolesque. Pour les uns, Tournier a proposé une "vision chrétienne de l'espérance humaine en la vie dominant la mort" (##Notes bibliographiques##). Pour d'autres, Tournier propose dans son oeuvre "un nouveau sacré qui serait matérialiste" (J. Piatier)

Une vingtaine de nouvelles et de contes dans lesquels se déploie "l'art subtil du détour et du leurre" d'un écrivain accompli qui joue ici sur les registres du jeu et de l'ironie et affirme que chacune des histoires "évoque un grand sujet classique sous des formes opposées". Des faiblesses (##L'auto fantôme##, etc.) et des textes nourris d'une mince anecdote (##Ecrire debout##, etc.). Pour A. Girard "un ensemble somptueux de saveurs discrètes". Pour A. Rinaldi "pas une phrase qui retienne". Ainsi va la critique littéraire
