Philosopher, poet and Belgian French speaking writer, Véronique Bergen reaches, with her book Kaspar Hauser (2006) (rewarded with the great literary triennial prize of the city of Tournai in 2007), an extraordinary mastery, as well by the way she depicts the complexity of the character as the way she describes European history at the beginning of the 19th century. She does it by not only diving into the frenzied relations to power or into the intimate history of several characters full of contrasts, but also by weaving all her book from the Kaspar character, from the issues of language and symbolic – and especially from the ground water of the poetic use of the language and of the world representation. By doing so, she also confirms that French speaking fictions are rooted in an in-between of the language and the History.
