In this brilliant and sobering self-portrait, Edouard Lev? hides nothing from his readers, setting out his entire life, more or less at random, in a string of declarative sentences. "Autoportrait" is a physical, psychological, sexual, political, and philosophical triumph. Beyond "sincerity," Lev? works toward an objectivity so radical it could pass for crudeness, triviality, even banality: the author has stripped himself bare. With the force of a set of maxims or morals, Lev?'s prose seems at first to be an autobiography without sentiment, as though written by a machine--until, through the accumulation of detail, and the author's dry, quizzical tone, we find ourselves disarmed, enthralled, and enraptured by nothing less than the perfect fiction... made entirely of facts.… (mais)

Pormenores da obra

Autoportrait por Édouard Levé (2005)

  1. 00
    I Remember por Georges Perec (bluepiano)
    bluepiano: Autoportrait is strongly reminiscent of the Perec piece and of the work on which Perec based his, I Remember by Joe Brainard; in fact Leve mentions in Autoportrait his admiration of Joe Brainard and was doubtless influenced by both works.

"Autoportrait" is a series of factual statements which, over the course of 117 pages, build to a portrait of the author which goes far beyond the superficial without ever crossing into subjectivity. It could be seen as a really strange way of writing an orderless autobiography that borders on abstraction though it is made entirely out of facts. We get the feeling that we know Léve better, perhaps, than those closest to him, as if he used this idea as a way to pour himself onto paper either for a great catharsis or so that he himself can exist without having to do so in a physical body. He did state that he finds that he reveals more about himself to stranger in the course of 2 hours than he ever has to his friends. Anyways, it's a strange little book, delving many times into controversial subject matter without the batting of an eye or sentimentality of any sort. Having said all that, the book leaves me somewhat indifferent. It's an interesting experience, but one that hasn't affected me much in any way apart from perhaps the exposure to the peculiar ideas that Léve tends to have. It's not mediocre by any means, but it isn't of greatness either. It could be a terrible book when all is said and done, but that just makes it all the more interesting, which is the best way to describe this work. ( )

this book is just "no homo, but in french" written six thousand times over and over. i'm nauseous. ( )

Initially, I suspected I would grow tired of this book's form: each page a wall of simple, declarative sentences wherein the author offers a little anecdote about himself, without any real pattern or structure. But, thankfully, this proved to be quite a treat! The book reads nicely, and I feel confident in Lorin Stein's (editor of The Paris Review) translations from the French. Most striking, though, are the similarities between the author and myself. Never has anther person's life so closely mirrored my own. After about 15 pages, I grabbed a highlighter and restarted the book. There are probably an average of 3-4 highlighted sentences per page. Were I to extract these sentences and compile them I would have a concise little autobiography of my own! ( )

Hey, I'm a huuuge fan of Suicide (the book, by Leve), and I loved the Paris Review excerpts from Autoportrait, but, I must be fair and honest, and say that a lot of this book was...you know - plain. Or dull, I suppose. There are moments of great clarity and insight and...things that really made me reflect and notice myself in a new (or fresh) way. But, ultimately, a lot of this book was boring or tedious. The Paris Review 'summary' (essentially), is actually better, because it distills the best parts from this.
Check out Suicide by Leve if you haven't already. Especially if you or someone you know has experienced it first-hand. ( )

Hypnotiserende, postmoderne mantra waarin Levé een niets verhullend, paragraafloos portret van zichzelf ophangt door op een koele, afstandelijke manier zijn voorkeuren, trekjes, gewoontes, manieën en obsessies in los van elkaar staande, korte zinnen te scanderen. Doordringend proza dat meteen aan je vel kleeft en naar de keel grijpt, de bezwerende cadans blijft nog uren na een leessessie in je hoofd naklinken. Beklemmend, dus traag en fragmentarisch te lezen.

Adolescent, je croyais que "La Vie mode d'emploi" m'aiderait à vivre, et "Suicide mode d'emploi" à mourir. J'ai passé trois ans et trois mois à l'étranger. Un de mes amis jouit dans la trahison. J'oublie ce qui me déplaît. J'ai peut-être parlé sans le savoir avec quelqu'un qui a tué quelqu'un. Je vais regarder dans les impasses. Ce qu'il y a au bout de la vie ne me fait pas peur. Je n'écoute pas vraiment ce qu'on me dit. J'ai parlé à Salvador Dalí à l'âge de deux ans : Décrire précisément ma vie me prendrait plus de temps que la vivre. La date de naissance qu'indique ma carte d'identité est fausse. Je ne sais pas sur qui j'ai de l'influence. Je parle à mes objets lorsqu'ils sont tristes. Je ne sais pas pourquoi j'écris. Je suis calme dans les retrouvailles. Je n'ai rien contre le réveillon. Quinze ans est le milieu de ma vie, quelle que soit la date de ma mort. Je crois qu'il y a une vie après la vie, mais pas une mort après la mort. Je ne demande pas si on m'aime. Je ne pourrai dire qu'une fois sans mentir « je meurs ». Le plus beau jour de ma vie est peut-être passé.
