ECHO(ES) OF THE NARCISSUS MYTH IN ANDRÉ GIDE’S LES CAHIERS D’ANDRÉ WALTER
Languages of publication
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.
