Initially, under the influence of the nouveau roman, Le Clézio's oeuvre gave priority to the effects of fiction over any autobiographical perspective. In the early works marginalised characters bring into question the excess of modernity (mass consumption, the impersonality of the crowd) while a deep osmosis between the subject and the world
- felt as almost essential after his discovery of the Amerindian cultures
- is ever more strongly perceptible in his works.
