Mouchette stands with his celebrated Diary of a Country Priest as the perfection of his singular art.Nothing but a little savage is how the village school-teacher describes fourteen-year-old Mouchette, and that view is echoed by every right-thinking local citizen. Mouchette herself doesnt bother to contradict it- ragged, foulmouthed, dirt-poor, a born liar and loser, she knows herself to be, in the words of the story, alone, completely alone, against everyone. Hers is a tale of tragic solitude in which despair and salvation appear to be inextricably intertwined.Bernanos uncompromising genius was a powerful inspiration to Flannery OConnor, and Mouchette was the source of a celebrated movie by Robert Bresson.
