L' œil animal dans l’œuvre de Claude Simon

Abstract : The motif of the animal eye is recurrent in Claude Simon's novels, whether it is on the occasion of the encounter with an animal by a human character who ``sees himself seen'', or in a comparison that gives animal qualities to a human being. The eye, ``seen instead of seeing'', is an interface that allows contact with the animal, enigmatic and unpredictable figure of absolute otherness, but it also becomes a mirror for the human character, who recognizes their own image. Finally, the narrator may detect animal traits in the characters' eyes. Far from being limited to a form of anthropozoomorphic caricature, this animalization of the human look, coupled with a humanization of the animal gaze, testifies to the porosity of the borders drawn by the author between animal species and human species, whose members have a gaze that animalizes the objects and the world around them.
