Title: L’archetype du voyage dans l’oeuvre de Georges Bugnet

Abstract: A study of Georges Bugnet's work reveals that in each of his novels there is an example of at least one voyage. Leading critics suggest that the voyage must not be read solely as a physical journey, but rather, they maintain that the horizontal journey is symbolic of a vertical journey towards the "centre" of our being. The introduction outlines the possibility of using this type of interpretation in the study of Georges Bugnet's novels. We suggest that his vision of the world is implicit in his literary production. The following three chapters apply a psychocritical approach to four novels. The conclusion propounds that Georges Bugnet's noble vision, shaped by nature in Canada, is the underlying thread that runs through his work. We believe, as does Bugnet, that the only "real adventure" is the discovery, of one's self. Having achieved this, each individual understands that the principle which governs life is love and he therefore manifests it in the "gift" of himself to the "Other."
