Abstract

This essay examines Annie Ernaux's sixth text as one which passes in review her previous work in order to rectify the gender inequities of each. Indeed, focusing solely on a love affair, this brief work uses sexuality, which has always been for the author a powerful means by which to understand herself and the world around her, for a settling of accounts. Thus, Passion simple is not only an epistemological tool for the investigation of the female libido but ultimately becomes a text of liberation as well in which the narrator assumes a value she once saw only in men.
