Abstract

Le Nénuphar et l’araignée is Claire Legendre’s tenth publication and originally an invitation by Editor Jean-Marie Jot to contribute to Les Allusifs’s collection—since terminated—“les peurs” (6). In a series of thirty-five brief chapters, Legendre, indeed, charts and attempts to make sense of her hypochondria, anxiety, superstition, fear of dying and living, and other phobias such as of insects and spiders in particular.
