Marie Boeswillwald, Claire Daudin
For some, Péguy is “an anarchist who put holy water in his oil”; for others, a dangerous rebellious whose “head is revolution”. Socialist and Catholic, pious poet and unleashed polemicist, Péguy turns out to be a man with a sometimes chaotic career, always leaping. Few authors have had such a controversial posterity as he. One hundred years after his death, it is time to do justice to this unclassifiable thinker, misunderstood in his time, and who has so much to say in ours. Yves Rouvière's drawings are there to give substance to words, “to embody the spiritual”, according to one of the intuitions dear to Péguy.
