Deux Anglaises et le Continent d'Henri-Pierre Roché : des avatars et des affres de l'amour
Deux Anglaises et le Continent was Henri-Pierre Roché’s second autobiographically inspired novel. Published in 1956, three years after his best known work, Jules et Jim, it principally draws on a period from the author’s youth and consists entirely of manipulated or fictional journal extracts and letters. More youthful in style and approach than his other works, the novel contains both the origins of Roché’s conception of love as well as its finality. For this reason, Deux Anglaises et le Continent can be seen as a pivotal work, embracing most of the themes, especially those relative to love, found in Henri-Pierre Roché’s œuvre.
