ABSTRACT
This article discusses the book "The Second Face," by Marcel Aymé. The novel opens with a device that reminds one of Poe (Edgar Allan, U.S. poet) and considering Poe's curious influence on French writers, it seems oddly appropriate today. The chief character finds in the course of applying for papers at a government office that his face has radically changed. This event, he soon discovers, is genuine change, it bars him from his wife and children, his friends, and his business associates. He is forced to experience anew his very existence that of his intimates and of his acquaintances, even to revaluate his former life.
