Gottfried Benn : 1886-1956. Sept moments de l. a. vie d'un poète expressionniste allemand. Médecin de surcroît. Son preferable recueil : Morgue, fait scandale. Ce sont ses souvenirs de los angeles maison des corps. On retrouve l'auteur en garnison à Bruxelles, durant los angeles Grande Guerre. Il s'occupe des filles qui contaminent «patriotiquement» l'armée allemande. Il assiste aussi à une mémorable exécution capitale. Il fut témoin de los angeles mort que l'on reçoit, de celle que l'on donne. Il s'est frotté aux putains cariées de vérole. Le plus bas de l. a. misère humaine. Il décrit ceci et cela, crûment, dans des textes hantés par de noires fulgurances. En marge, il connaît aussi l'extase. Mais même un visionnaire peut s'aveugler. Lui qui fuyait l'Histoire, il choisit, pour l. a. rejoindre, los angeles pire des occurrences. Quand los angeles plupart des écrivains allemands fuient le nazisme, il choisit de rester, et devient - pour peu de temps - un compagnon de path de l. a. barbarie... Renié par les émigrants, il sera bientôt proscrit par le nouveau Reich. Il est rejeté par tout le monde à los angeles fois. Le voici censuré, réduit pour plus de dix ans au silence. Pourtant, après los angeles fin de los angeles seconde guerre, l. a. génération de «l'année zéro» découvre en lui, quelquefois, le précurseur des idées qui vont circuler dans l'Occident à reconstruire. Sa parole circule à nouveau. Mais revient-on jamais tout à fait d'un voyage au bout du fourvoiement?Gottfried Benn dans tous ses états. Poète révolutionnaire, intellectuel rallié, puis persécuté, réhabilité enfin... Médecin des plus démunis, des disgraciés. Amant cannibale, endeuillé. Père absent, aimant. Lui prêter une série d'interlocuteurs qui traversent près de trois quarts de siècle d'existence: un professeur d'anatomie, sa première femme, une prostituée, sa fille, sa dernière compagne.Pour dire cela: une fiction, bien sûr. Rien qu'une fiction. Qui raconte l'erreur d'une vie, et los angeles vie d'une erreur. Le plus courtroom chemin entre Histoire et histoire, c'est encore d'imaginer. Le biographe, ici, n'a d'autre choix que de se faire historien, et le chroniqueur n'a d'autre ressource que de devenir romancier. Mais le romancier, à son journey, n'a de likelihood d'y voir clair que de se découvrir poète.Pierre Mertens
