The Critical Role of Children in the Work of Le Clezio

Hadi Salehi, Zeinab Salehi


Since childhood is the golden age of human being’s life, Le Clezio has tried to introduce children as the main heroes in most of his works. In Le Clezio’s works, child is the symbol of freedom, purity and simplicity. Such an attitude towards the child and children’s world makes the writer to depict a close connection that exists between the child and the world realities such as society, nature and happiness. He writes about a society full of dirt, a nature that its elements speak to the child and a kind of happiness that the child himself creates in the world.
