This collection of essays celebrates the work of the French Nobel prize-winning novelist Claude Simon. Scholars from France, Germany, the United States and the United Kingdom reconsider the fifty years of Simon?s fiction in the light of his large-scale autobiographical novel Le Jardin des Plantes (1997). From a variety of perspectives? postmodernist, psychoanalytic, aesthetic? contributors reflect on the central paradox of Simon?s work: his writing and rewriting of an experience of war so disruptive and traumatic that words can never be adequate to communicate it.

"Rabelais apprit jadis à l'Europe que le rire était le propre de l'homme. Sur ce point, il se peut que les Européens soient plus hommes encore que les autres : inventeurs de la comédie (grecque), de l'esprit (français), de l'humour (anglais), du Carnaval et de la caricature, possesseurs de Cervantès, de Charlie Chaplin et de Raymond Devos, ils ont fondé, au mépris des traditions sérieuses qui les ont également traversés, une culture où le rire est conçu à la fois comme un merveilleux conducteur de sociabilité et un irremplaçable instrument de la raison critique. À l'heure où, bon gré mal gré, les Européens se décident à se donner un destin politique commun, il a paru intéressant d'examiner les opportunités que leur offre le rire -pour se comprendre, mais aussi pour se différencier. Y a-t-il un rire européen? Une façon particulière de rire ensemble malgré des sensibilités culturelles irréductibles à toute uniformisation? Sur quelles connivences, soutenu par quelles valeurs, au sein de quelles tourmentes, dans l'espoir de quelles libérations, le rire européen fuse-t-il, d'une nation de l'Europe à une autre ou de l'Europe vers les autres continents? Ces questions méritaient le concours d'historiens, de sociologues, de littéraires et de linguistes, venus de France et de Grande-Bretagne mais aussi d'Allemagne, d'Italie, de Roumanie, du Danemark et du Niger. Dans le vaste éventail qu'ils ouvrent ici, on verra se déployer toutes les facettes d'un rire qui, de Milan Kundera à Pies Paolo Pasolini et de l'Inde à l'Afrique noire fait entendre la voix d'une Europe complexe, à la fois sûre et inquiète d'elle-meme, héritière (infidèle?) et inventrice (épuisée?) dune certaine forme d'humanisme de la Joie"--P.
