By Catherine Robbe-Grillet
Beaucoup connaissent Robbe-Grillet mais qui connaît Alain ? Il ne s'agit pas ici de livrer une biographie d'A.R.-G. Ni de revenir sur les sujets abordés par lui dans ses Romanesques, ailleurs, et par moi dans Jeune Mariée (Nouveau Roman, combats littéraires ou politiques, cinéma, etc.) Mon projet est plus limité : mettre en lumière certaines facettes de notre vie de couple, mettre l'accent sur quelques facets de sa personnalité saisis à travers nos objets intimes ou quotidiens et, par touches successives, compléter de son versant conjugal son photo publique. Sans plus. » Dans ce texte qui se déroule sous l. a. forme d’un abécédaire aux entrées a priori ludiques (Agendas à Yaourt), Catherine Robbe-Grillet restitue les gestes de l’homme qui partagea sa vie cinquante sept ans. On le découvre insensible à l. a. douleur body, mais dévasté par les dégâts occasionnés par l. a. tempête sur son parc, passionné par ses cactées auxquels il accordait une cognizance exceptionnelle, ou grand novice de vin, de thé et de pots vides, tandis qu’il exécrait le ketchup. Catherine Robbe-Grillet revient également sur certains malentendus comme los angeles raison pour laquelle son mari ne se rendit pas aux obsèques de son éditeur ami Lindon. Elle pose un regard lucide et acéré sur certains épisodes de leur vie, tel l’établissement d’un contrat de prostitution conjugale qu’elle ne signa jamais, ou l. a. liaison de son époux avec l’actrice Catherine Jourdan qui inquiéta leurs proches, mais qu’elle assuma totalement, n’ayant jamais redouté d’être abandonnée.

He was the first of the Illyrian soldier emperors who would begin to reverse the fortunes of the Roman Empire and lay the foundations for the Roman recovery under Diocletian and Constantine. He began his reign by employing his mobile forces to beat back a transalpine invasion of Germanic Alamanni in northern Italy. After a short stay in Rome, he then led a large imperial army into the Balkans to face Gothic hordes who had crossed the Danube late in the reign of Gallienus, He defeated some of them at Doberus in Macedonia, and smashed the rest in a great battle at Naissus in Moesia.
He was able to employ his more diversified army to keep the Gallic Empire at bay in the west, to repress military usurpations and barbarian invasions from the north, and to bring aid to cities still being harassed by Goths and Heruli in eastern Europe over the next few years. He also reversed the religious policy of his father, immediately issuing proclamations rescinding the repression of Christians, and rescripts allowing the bishops to reclaim Church property and to hold worship services without molestation.
23 Yet, as some thinkers of the crisis era were working on a refocusing of pagan polytheism, other imperial citizens were moving away from the old cults towards a new cult which seemed better able to meet personal religious needs—Christianity. ”24 According to the canonical Gospel accounts of his career, Jesus seems to have sensed a unique sonship to the Jewish God, and felt a special calling to fulfill Old Testament messianic prophecies. As the “Teacher of Righteousness” and “Light of the World,” he had taught a radical ethic of love toward God and humanity, and proclaimed authoritative interpretations of the Mosaic Law.
