La métaphysique dans les romans de Patrick Modiano

Abstract : After having highlighted in the first part the author's biography and the series of his novels published untill 1989, we go in the second part to the heart of the subject : to speak on the subject of "metaphysics" is also and especially to speak of "physics", as the raw material which the modianesque world is built upon, is nothing else but metaphysics itself, personified through the concrete places of his novels space. This stage is followed by the doubt about existence : to abstract and go beyond the blurred vision of the substance, by a phenomenon of shades and lights. The presence of a musical structure that rules Modiano's works, opens on happiness and proves that the maturation of time merges into the infinite and resolves the matter of identity. As for the character, his name does his destiny. In the third part, one attends the double jewish-christian identity of the modianesque man, as well as the kaleidoscopy of his being. Here, the father holds a most important place, through the image of an absurd or non absurd god, yet always omnipresent. As for the fourth part, it shows a blocking at the level of time, yet not without a serious attempt from the author towards opening and freedom
