Informations and abstract


The «little corsair» Renée Hamon (1897-1943) describes her wonderful adventures in the islands visited on the South' Seas, the reef, the Maori traditions and the mythic Tahiti, the subject of Gauguin paintings, the paradise which inspired so many occidental people to get closer to the nature. Hamon's book is a real reportage of the beginning of the Twentieth century, and more importantly a beautiful novel documenting the illnesses, diseases and poverty brought in such remote places by the Europeans. Renée Hamon French writings include also elements of the local language, the Tahitian - as keyinstrument which we analysed roughly in the attempt to understand and characterise her telling.
