We aim in the present paper at illustrating the importance of the myth of Narcissus in Gide’s prose. The recurrence of this myth is a proof of the fact that the writer often resorts to memory in creating his characters. Looking into the mirror, the basic act of the myth of Narcissus, becomes a gesture through which the writer plunges into his past and psychic. Thus, Narcissus turns into a fragmentary, totalising myth, a hallmark of both Gide’s life and work.
