Abstract : The works of André Hardellet constantly show how attached he is to the sensitive world. The land and its different landscpaes take pride of place in his writing : all Hardellian characters and narrators are closely and essentially linked to them, a relationship which feeds them and directs their quest. The world is not seen as mere setting : those who roam and watch it are eager to grasp it, to uncover its mystery, but even more than that, they try to reclaim a part of themselves that they lost. Some places more than others make this reunion possible, and the characters never stop hauting them, while the writer collects them withim his texts, thus creating his own geography. This determination to write about, as well as to imagine the land, stems from a sense of loss and destruction. The aftermath of war, ruining as it did the theatre of innocence and the joys of life that went with it, forces man to become a writer, that is to say, a re-creator. With taht aim in mind, André Hardellet uses all writing forms to render as best as he can the world that he re-creates and he does not hesitate to let the world and works of past writers an artist enter i work, as if to extend his own space with other pre-established ones. For in that desire to write about the land, it is indeed fiction and fantasy that the writer embraces, deliberately turning his back on any form of involvement aimed at changing the world. Hardellian geographical spaces raise questions about reality, and force us to notice its relativy. Rossed and tested by go-betweens and demigods, they remain, in the full sense, human in that, thanks to their fantastic ramifications, far from making man lose his way, they help him find his genuine place back and guide him to a sacred revelation.
