L'Opoponax

By Monique Wittig

« Mon Opoponax, c'est peut-être, c'est même à peu près sûrement le foremost livre moderne qui ait été fait sur l'enfance. Mon Opoponax, c'est l'exécution capitale de quatre-vingt-dix pour cent des livres qui ont été faits sur l'enfance. C'est l. a. fin d'une certaine littérature et j'en remercie le ciel. C'est un livre à l. a. fois admirable et très very important parce qu'il est régi par une règle de fer, jamais enfreinte ou presque jamais, celle de n'utiliser qu'un matériau descriptif pur, et qu'un outil, le langage objectif pur. Ce dernier prend ici tout son sens. Il est celui-là même – mais porté au plain-chant par l'auteur – dont l'enfance se sert pour déblayer et dénombrer son univers. Ce qui revient à dire que mon Opoponax est un chef d'œuvre d'écriture parce qu'il est écrit dans los angeles langue exacte de l'Opoponax. »

Marguerite Duras (extrait de los angeles postface)

Ce livre, optimum roman de Monique Wittig, a reçu lors de sa e-book en 1964 le prix Médicis.
