Synopsis

L'÷uvre d'Olivier Rolin n'a pas encore eu droit a l'attention critique qu'elle merite, sans doute parce qu'elle occupe une place a part dans le paysage litteraire contemporain. Ne en 1947, ancien maoiste, ancien journaliste, auteur depuis 1983 d'une ÷uvre exigeante composee de romans et de recits de voyage, Olivier Rolin a obtenu en 1994 le prix Femina pour Port-Soudan, roman qui lui a valu la reconnaissance du grand public. Le succes recent de Tigre en papier (2002, prix France Culture) n'a fait que confirmer le talent du romancier.



Au sein d'une production romanesque marquee par le minimalisme et par l'ecriture post-naturaliste, les textes de Rolin frappent par leur ecriture riche, foisonnante, baroque, a la syntaxe tourmentee. Ces romans renaclent, en plus, a prendre acte d'un monde aseptise, purge de tout sens tragique, refoulant le rapport a l'Histoire : les textes roliniens sont un exercice d'anamnese. C'est dans cette mesure-la qu'ils se proposent comme une reflexion sur l'Histoire et qu'ils exercent une fonction critique, car le present y est toujours percu de facon melancolique comme le tres pale reflet d'un passe prestigieux.

Ce recueil reunit les contributions de quelques lecteurs qui partagent un meme interet pour cette ÷uvre singuliere dont ils essaient de cerner la specificite. Dans un entretien inedit, Olivier Rolin retrace lui-meme son parcours qui peut se lire comme un acte de foi dans le pouvoir de l'ecrivain a retenir quelque chose du temps qui passe.
