De la représentation de soi à l'écriture de l'œuvre dans la correspondance de Jean Giono

Abstract : Known for his unique novels, Giono turns out to be the core of an enormous epistolary communication network. His correspondence offers us the opportunity to discover his life, his work in progress and the circumstances of the writing of his novel and its genesis. Several « self-images » emerge from his speech (or writing) revealing the author's great skill in developing his ethos, which he does not always master. They enable us to understand its identity construction, to reveal its complexity and to retrace the author's long journey to glory. This letter writer uses the letter in order to clear a path in the literary field. His exchange with famous authors, many publishers and several partners in literary and cultural life enable him to become a member of the writers “tribe” and to become a part of the society of letters. Giono gradually manages to occupy a privileged place in this world of literary and political power. The letter that does not escape epistolary rhetoric deserves to be studied as a text whose literality rivals that of the work. Giono's love letter is a very revealing example.
