[Louis-Ferdinand] Céline, portrait de l'artiste en clochard

Abstract : From 1957 to his death, in 1961, the writer Louis-Ferdinand Céline implements a paradoxical plan of self-promotion. He claims that he’s modest and imputes to his enemies the necessity to build up his self-advertise. He pretends to be ruined because they plagiarized his artwork. The advertising campaign turns to an indictment and to a process in rehabilitation. Like Chateaubriand before him, he presents him-self as the last French writer and as the victim of a fierce cabal.
