« Céline est un grand écrivain, mais ce n'est pas un écrivain comme les autres. Il m'arrive aujourd'hui encore, en lisant un des "contre-Céline" qui se publient périodiquement, de me demander remark j'ai pu consacrer tant d'années à éditer et à explorer l'œuvre d'un auteur aussi controversé et, en effet, aussi problématique... »

Within the first 300 words of A Portrait the experience of the artist as an infant is filtered to him through various media: the opening lines are a story of a ‘moo cow’ being told to him by his father; he then hears a song and tries to sing it; he is made to dance while his mother plays the piano; he is introduced to the symbolic colours on the brushes of Dante’s press; he is intimidated with nursery rhyme words which will recur in his later experiences at college—‘Apologise, / Pull out his eyes’.
