Jacues le Fataliste et son ma tre Jacues the Fatalist Denis Diderot 1713 1784Jacues the Fatalist and his Master French Jacues le fataliste et son ma tre is a novel by Denis Diderot written during the period 1765 1780 The first French edition was published posthumously in 1796 but it was known earlier in Germany thanks to Goethe s partial translation which appeared in 1785 and was retranslated into French in 1793 as well as Mylius s complete German version of 1792The main subject of the book is the relationship between the valet Jacues and his master who is never named The two are traveling to a destination the narrator leaves vague and to dispel the boredom of the journey Jacues is compelled by his master to recount the story of his loves However Jacues s story is continually interrupted by other characters and various comic mishaps Other characters in the book tell their own stories and they too are continually interrupted There is even a reader who periodically interrupts the narrator with uestions objections and demands for information or detail The tales told are usually humorous with romance or sex as their subject matter and feature complex characters indulging in deception Jacues s key philosophy is that everything that happens to us down here whether for good or for evil has been written up above on a great scroll that is unrolled a little bit at a time Yet Jacues still places value on his actions and is not a passive character Critics such as J Robert Loy have characterized Jacues s philosophy as not fatalism but determinism The book is full of contradictory characters and other dualities One story tells of two men in the army who are so much alike that though they are the best of friends they cannot stop dueling and wounding each other Another concerns Father Hudson an intelligent and effective reformer of the church who is privately the most debauched character in the book Even Jacues and his master transcend their apparent roles as Jacues proves in his insolence that his master cannot live without him and therefore it is Jacues who is the master and the master who is the servant The story of Jacues s loves is lifted directly from Tristram Shandy which Diderot makes no secret of as the narrator at the end announces the insertion of an entire passage from Tristram Shandy into the story Throughout the work the narrator refers derisively to sentimental novels and calls attention to the ways in which events develop realistically in his book At other times the narrator tires of the tedium of narration altogether and obliges the reader to supply certain trivial details 2008 1386 358 9647443196 1387 18

Master Do you prayJacues SometimesMaster And what do you sayJacues I say Thou who mad st the Great Scroll whatever Thou art Thou whose finger hast traced the Writing Up Above Thou hast known for all time what I needed Thy will be done AmenMaster Don t you think you would do just as well if you shut upIt is often too easy for me to forget that high humor and religious cynicism are not new developments within the realm of published fiction On top of that as much as we readers here about pomo trickery and meta humor these terms often used as insults akin to calling someone trendy are generally associated with literature no than a century old Well to all you pomos and popomos allow me to introduce you to Denis Diderot He is your metatastic brother from another great great great great great grandmother At some point before his death in 1784 he composed Jacues the Fatalist in some editions titled Jacues the Fatalist and His Master an arguably better name because of the fact that it directly references the text s play on character power dynamics 1784 Remember thatThis novel written in the stage play style seen above combined with freuent asides by an omniscient brassy narrator tells the story of real life storytelling as depicted in written form Diderot breaks down the common motifs of the stock novel holding its cliches in one hand and the reality of conversing with other human beings in the other The dialogue is the same interrupted rambling endless swirl of words that we tend to find in actual attempts at expressing ourselves verbally either one on one or in groups Therefore stories are begun and left unfinished people are cut off corrected and reprimanded and plot possibilities are dangled in front of the reader and left to his or her own particular devices all while our playful snarky narrator reminds us that there is no way we can know for a fact one way or another if he is being truthful so why put stock in him or the storystories in the first place The book constantly re references repeats mirrorsdistorts and criticizes itself in a way that calls to uestion all creative interpretations of reality due amongst other things to the biases reader storyteller and subject bring into the telephone game that is relaying information in a meaningful way And it is amazingly funny while doing so I would be willing to bet my lunch money that Charlie Kaufman is a huuuuge Diderot fanTo go back to my earlier pointif you are religiously inclined I would stay away from this book unless you are of a mind to read elouently expressed harshly stated opinions which conflict with your own It is no secret that Diderot was a spiteful sort about organized religion and he uses Jacues and his insistence on Predestination as means to excuse his debauchery along with every other spiritual figure in the story each of which is almost corrupt than basically every non religious character within this fictional realm as a means to highlight the hypocrisy escapism and general slovenliness he saw in default spiritual beliefs Proceed with caution as this one does biteThis story was a bit of an awakening for me It may be the oldest piece of literature I have read which embraced meta humor to such an extreme As I previously stated I tend to let myself think that this sort of thing is a new ish development a product of information over saturation or something However Jacues the Fatalist is one of the most self aware admittedly even brazenly self critical and uite frankly hilarious novels about novel writing and reading that I have ever read It constantly stops to reflect on itself jarring you with by repeatedly pointing out that this is not an escape this is not a reality this is a story about stories within stories within stories and you are reading it right now The tangled mess that it eventually becomes reminded me in many ways of THIS bit of genius
