Le Tramway by Claude Simon

By Claude Simon

Un tramway relie une ville de province à l. a. plage voisine, distante d’une quinzaine de kilomètres. Aux heures matinales, il fait accessoirement place of work de ramassage scolaire. Ses allées et venues d’un terminus à l’autre entre les ondulations des vignes ponctuent le cours des vies, avec leurs menus ou cruels événements. Les lieux où se déroule l’action sont principalement le bord de mer, une maison de campagne, los angeles ville qui peu à peu se modernise, un courtroom de tennis. Dans sa fragilité, los angeles vie s’acharne par ailleurs à poursuivre son cours à travers les dédales des couloirs et des pavillons d’un hôpital, et d’infimes coïncidences amènent parfois les deux trajets à se confondre.

« Pas de psychologie chez Claude Simon : c’est l’écriture, et elle seule, qui prend en cost cette fragile renaissance au monde dans l. a. proximité de l. a. mort. L’écriture hint donc un chemin, un itinéraire, celui du tramway qui menait, pendant 15 kilomètres, les voyageurs du centre de Perpignan aux villas bourgeoises de l. a. côte lorsque l’écrivain était enfant. Que ce parcours soit aussi initiatique – initiation à un non-savoir, celui de l. a. mort –, les premières pages du livre nous en persuadent. » (Pierre Lepape, Le Monde)

Publié en 2001, Le Tramway est le dernier roman de Claude Simon.

Hertz 1960, p. 74) The aforementioned thoughts on the harmonizing of the physiological dimensions of death and the death concept can be clarified by a concrete element of custom taken from the European peasant culture. It is a well-known phenomenon in most cultures that the survivors strive to “blur” the difference between the conditions of the living and the dead, thus trying to alleviate the dramatic nature of death. It is the most practically and easily done if they endow the corpse with a number of features that only belong to the living.
