The Biblical Judith occupied a significant place in the private mythology of Michel Leiris, peopled by numerous female figures. Her portrait, outlined in the autobiographical 'L'Age d'homme', differs considerably from the characteristic in the Old Testament Book of Judith. The author closely follows the changes and transition of meaning to which Judith had been subjected in comparison to her Biblical original. Furthermore, he reveals the peculiar exegesis conducted by Leiris, indicating that despite the fact that its deciphering cannot be defended upon the basis of an exegesis subjected to methodological rigours, it still possesses an indispensable existential value; reading it is treated in the categories of 'creative treason'.
