Example text

Dans tous les secteurs de passé antila population, on se hâte de se découvrir an- franquiste ? tifranquiste, on s’invente un passé de résistant, on se trouve des incidents avec la police. Il faut parler, il faut avoir des modèles. Les jeunes surtout ont besoin de héros, Enric le deviendra. Il parle bien, paraît modeste, il a l’allure décidée. Il parcourt la Catalogne, va partout en Espagne, jusque devant le Parlement, où il soutire quelques larmes aux députés. Quand, sous un de ses noms d’emprunt, il est élu secrétaire général de la CNT, Juan Gómez Casas dira de lui « qu’il était courageux et intelligent ».

Mais il se pourrait aussi qu’Aragon ait reproduit un besoin ardent de reconnaissance, avec le Parti comme avec Elsa, avant de s’en libérer glorieusement, via son étonnante émancipation finale, pour vivre enfin sans plus avoir à craindre ni à faire peur. Les hypothèses de la psychanalyse sont souvent prévisibles, mais elles aident parfois à rendre touchant un homme qui s’était débrouillé pour rester incompréhensible. On ne pouvait sinon rêver d’un démontage plus éclairant du mode de fonctionnement d’Aragon le multiple, cet être qui changeait à chaque interlocuteur.

Par Michel del Castillo C e n’est pas un roman, c’en est pourtant un, saturé de fiction, qui vous happe, vous plonge dans un malaise profond, vous fait vous demander qui l’on est. On y entre avec réticence, on se dit : qu’ai-je à voir avec cet Enric Marco qui n’a pas combattu pendant la guerre civile, qui n’était pas anarchiste, mais qui prétend avoir lutté sur le front de Huesca, de Saragosse et avoir participé au débarquement des Baléares. On calcule son âge, 16 ans, 17 ans, c’est possible, ce n’est pas certain.
