Heroic statuary remedies the indignity done to men in naturalist fiction, where the idea of male pride and prowess is unromanticized and demythified. In a scene at the end of Le Calvaire, Mintié imagines the ragtag remains of the Le Mans regiment being replaced by the city’s routed battailion of lovers. Stronger than the virile, serene Prussian rider is an army of women resplendent in their feathered hats and colored dresses, furies whose enemies line the Bois de Boulogne avenue with their corpses.
42 For Jules, the act of mortuary hygiene is his disposal of the trunk, which is set on fire and symbolically enacts the cremation of its owner. With the incineration of the container and the ventilation of its contents, Jules posthumously accomplishes the lifting of repression, undoing the damage that social institutions had done in life. In a whirlwind arabesque of images of buttocks, breasts, and penises, the danse macabre becomes a model of the authentic art work, which exists in the fleeting time of its self-annihilation.
This is why Mintié projects himself as a suffering redeemer – imprisoned in the body, denied any real transcendence. However, since Mintié never writes, the Cross ceases to act as the site of symbolization. It no longer marks the point where speaking man beholds a divinity beyond language. Instead, like the unwritten book, it exists solely as an object whose indestructibility situates eternity in matter. There is no longer an expiatory transformation of sinful writers into literature, since Mintié escapes mortality by attaining fame directly – never writing books that earn the esteem of future generations.
