Les Hommes de bonne volonté: despite its audaciousness, the title straightaway deceives the reader. In juxtaposition to the disorders and conflicts of a world subjugated to the cataclysms of history, it only offers a weak evangelic virtue. Renunciation, even defeat, is foreshadowed in the very opening of this colossal novel in which, contrary to the title, an omnipresent evil is in evidence at the very heart of families as well as at the centre of other groups and secret societies. Its most intensified forms of perversions completely infiltrate certain volumes, while the enigmatic Quinette, the double of Landru and archetypal character of evil, raises the status of murderer to an intellectual discipline. The representatives of good, as helpless spectators, attend a Sabbath on the brink of hell before turning their back on an incurable world that they no longer hope to redeem. This book tries to evaluate the complex strategies used by the author to substantiate this fascinating representation of evil, comprised of subtle compromises with the fearsome character of the father, the real manipulator of the machinery of evil, hidden in the wings of this vast theatre that is the Hommes de bonne volonté.
