Obscuration (Déconnection) by Claude Ollier

By Claude Ollier

Deux histoires se croisent dans ce livre, s'y relaient, échangeant leurs incertitudes, leurs questionnements, leurs frayeurs, leurs pressentiments.
La première renvoie à un passé récent : elle se déroule en Allemagne dans les dernières années de los angeles seconde guerre mondiale.
La seconde anticipe un futur proche : le tournant du siècle. Elle se passe dans une contrée paisible, un petit village des Causses.
Dans les deux cas, un homme - adolescent, puis adulte - vit une série d'événements exceptionnels qui excèdent sa compréhension, le prenant totalement au dépourvu et le faisant douter de tout ce qu'il a appris et vénéré.
S'il y a ecu une rémission voici un demi-siècle, passé l'orage de l. a. guerre, elle semble avoir été vécue comme un sursis : une grande ombre à nouveau gagne le continent, dans le silence cette fois-ci, l'indifférence presque - éclipse peut-être, ou obscuration sturdy, opaque, indéchiffrable.
L'ouvrage, publié en 1988 sous le titre de Déconnection, est réédité aujourd'hui sous son titre refusé à l'époque par le preferable éditeur.

Grief blooms upon my loyalty. ’       Parzival Gahmuret’s immediate thought was that, although she was a heathen, a more womanly and loyal disposition had never glided into a woman’s heart. Her chastity was a pure baptism, as was the rain which poured upon her, the flood that flowed from her eyes down upon her sable and her breast.

Killirjacac was his name, a counterweight to all men’s beauty. When Gahmuret beheld him––their countenances attested their kinship, they resembled one another greatly––he asked the mighty queen to kiss and embrace him. ’ The host then kissed him himself––they were delighted to see one another. Gahmuret then said: ‘Alas, gentle youth, what were you doing here, being of such tender years?
