There are no periods.

There are only spaces, pauses that seem to genuflect to the next sequence of thoughts. There is no space between the spaces in between.

Only stale air, and stagnant streams. He writes as if masturbating his mind, on and on with wanton attention to every stroke, every hitch, every catch in breath. He pounds you into conscious unconsciousness, exhausting you with ceaseless, savage assaults to your psyche.

There is only an absolute and filthy whole of a story. In July , he was invited to Cuba, along with other writers, where he travelled to the Sierra Maestra with Fidel Castro. In , Guyotat's play Bond en avant "Leap Forward" was performed. During the s Guyotat was involved in various diverse protests: for soldiers, immigrants, and prostitutes.

In his novel Prostitution came out which incorporated Bond en avant as the final monologue. From this point on, Guyotat's novels deal with a new kind of illegibility and obscenity.

The fictions still explore the unthinkable possibility of worlds structured by sexual slavery and transgression of fundamental taboos. But the French language is now unrecognizable, estranged by an extreme grammatical, syntactic and lexical creativity. Ellipses of letters or words, neologisms and phonetic transcriptions of Arabic speaking utterances make it difficult to understand.

The use of voices is perhaps an admission of weakness… The vocal was already present in the text, in the form of a voice and a parallel voice. Leiris magisterially points this out in his preface. It was this voice that took charge when it proved impossible to get right down to the real: to get microscopically close, in fact… I wanted to find a literary, artistic equivalent in phrasing to atomic reality. And in the end I have perhaps been able to render that reality through the voice, through speech.

I often look at vocalization as an easy, fun solution. By using voices I have rediscovered what we call humanity.

From Prostitution onward the language ceases, happily, to be standard contemporary French, and the creatures cease to be fully human. What, then, is your interest in humanity, being that its manifestation in your work is off-kilter from humanity? Also, perhaps humanity is appalling in the flesh for someone who lives it as intensely as I do, or else perhaps the real thing is too complex.

So I took things much further. This has nothing to do with the philosophy of my generation. This is not in any way a regression into the past, as they say. It is perhaps, alas, a prefiguration. I see this work, my work, as a kind of insurance against a possible future. I think using non-beings, and making them into rather glorious figures, lovely figures, is also a way to reconsider what has happened.

A way to lay a hand on the shoulder of future victims. Everything I do amounts to that: holding hands with someone else.

Once the monster is born nothing can stop it. It took years, and gigantic armies, to slay the monster. There are tyrannies, there are wars, and then there are monsters that appear, that are impossible to bring to heel. Satan must pass.

You enlarge them, thicken them, draw a circle around them; you draw a circle around forms that have remained classical, and thereby lay them bare. You must point a thing out before you can get beyond it. Also, you must show yourself what needs to be gotten beyond: the style of tragedy, or comedy. That is what I call parody. I parody to achieve something new. A revolutionary is someone who knows tradition cold. You have to see it, grasp it, show it, frame it. What I do is a parody of rhetoric: the rhetoric of oratory, the rhetoric of Racine, the rhetoric of Hugo, Rimbaud, everyone.

The further I advance, the more figures I annex. You have to have a very strong sense of melody to make it palatable.

Do you still believe in it? Scary stories, the kind that have always been around, and are part of the parody.

I no longer have the political engagement to go along with it. And is there such an engagement to begin with? A particular scene. That is what I need. That is what fills my throat.

Stravinsky has had no posterity. It just ate away at me, which lends me a certain legitimacy when I say what I say. I truly suffered giving birth to this. I thought what I was doing amounted to a sort of personal dialect that could never be understood or shared.Once you come to that understanding you start to look at things differently.

It was a certain refusal of transcendence, as well as an experiment in the production of desire.

In , Guyotat published his second novel Ashby. A revolutionary is someone who knows tradition cold. Do we mean humanity in the sense of humane sentiment? It is a fiction entirely out of the Sahara. That I am no more right than my interrogators and tormentors. The other way at least has the merit of halting a process that could end up being unhealthy.
