In this book Sturrock attempts to place Celine's Journey to the End of the Night in historical context, he gives some biographical details relating to Celine's life, he elucidates the major themes of the novel, and he analyzes the style. Sturrock is quite successful in all of those tasks. dissertation (a biography of Ignaz-Philip Semmelweis). For example, Sturrock highlights the theme of the journey. The journey seems to have two functions. First, the fact that Bardamu travels the world is what allows him to claim universality for his insights into human nature. If Bardamu had remained in France for the whole novel the universality of his insights would have been lost.

Analysis of Journey to the End of the Night by Celine. The Journey describes the metaphysical wanderings of men condemned to the absurdity of life and human folly. Deeply misanthropic and nihilistic, the thesis of the novel can be summarized as follows: Man has no place of comfort, life, as the metaphor of journey is useless. The episode reflects the African anti-colonialism of Celine. He described a savage domination of the local settlers. He paints the colonial world as a rotten world, plagued by alcoholism and low blows, between settlers and between settlers and natives. The so-called civilization brought by the West is a lie. This criticism is particularly taken up by Sartre in his preface to the Wretched of the Earth has Fanon.
