Pierre Guyotat: Literature as Total Artwork

The French writer Pierre Guyotat (1940-2020) is one of the greatest authors in twentieth French Literature, with a unique voice. He died in Paris through last Friday night. As Azzedine Alaïa wrote (Pierre Guyotat, La matière de nos oeuvres), Guyotat “ennobled French language: with his unique writing he achieves to speak of things we don’t speak of with an enormous beauty. His writing is powerful, subtle, and different from any other writing. It is the French language in all its splendour: at the same time, popular and elaborated.”
