Homage to Henri Queffélec
This homage goes well beyond the famous novel, the story of «Elan», ocean tugboat, and its captain Jacques Avril.
Henri Queffélec (1910-1992), the brilliant Breton novelist, is the pre-eminent author cum narrator who leads us through the discovery of the tempests of Douarnenez, the story of fire emanating the sea and the lives of the men of Ouessant, Sein, Groix or Molène. Queffélec presents his subject in a manner that will satisfy the passions of all lovers of the sea. Indeed, his artful narrative has such a profound impression on me that I often have the feeling of belonging to the family of “sailors”, even though, much to my regret, the reality is that my experiences as a seafarer occur far more often in my dreams than on water.
