    Abstract

    Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio is widely regarded as one of the greatest living writers in the French language. He is the author of at least forty books, including novels, short stories, philosophical essays, translations from Amerindian texts and numerous prefaces and articles as well as children's stories. His writings represent a powerful critique of Western materialist societies and are characterised by an openness towards other cultures and towards more spiritual, less rational worldviews. Focusing on the poor and marginalised, Le Clézio's texts condemn all forms of exploitation and slavery as well as the ideologies that underpin warfare, colonial expansion and economic globalisation.
