By Julien Gracq

Un specific homenaje a l. a. novela gótica.

En el castillo de Argol es un specific homenaje que Julien Gracq rinde a los angeles novela gótica y al Parsifal de Wagner, considerado por el autor como una indagación en los angeles parte demoníaca que tiene todo mito de redención, en l. a. doble naturaleza de todo salvador: «Seréis como dioses, conocedores del bien y del mal». Así, rodeado por tormentas, mares amenazadores y bosques siniestros, Albert, último heredero de una familia noble, llega a su casa solariega de Argol, en l. a. inhóspita Bretaña. Su retiro espiritual se verá pronto roto por los angeles llegada de Herminien, su mejor amigo, y de una extraña muchacha llamada Heide, poseedora de una belleza tal que «antes incluso de que fuera percibida, period sentida como única».

El triángulo amoroso está formado y el escenario dispuesto para un intenso drama.

Reseñas:
«Las grandes novelas y relatos de Gracq, comenzando por En el castillo de Argol, son misteriosas fábulas donde se confunden las iluminaciones oníricas y un estilo olímpico, de los angeles más alta escuela retórica francesa.»
Juan Pedro Quiñonero, ABC
