O: L'Opoponax. Paris: Editions de Minuit, 1964. " Feminist Issues 4, no. 4 (1984), 4549. V: Virgile, non. Paris: Editions de Minuit, 1985. Page 3 Prologue "Tout Geste Est Renversement" (Les Guérillères) Renversement, in all its multiplicity of meaningsupheaval, overthrow, reversal, and subversioncan be considered the key to Monique Wittig's writing. From the very start, Wittig's use of this concept has spelled the annihilation of existing literary canons and the creation of highly innovative constructs.
Other interesting examples of Wittig's work with language can be found in her use of verbs. In L'Opoponax, as has been seen, these are all in the present tense (except for one instance in the very last phrase). And whereas in a later work, Le Corps lesbien, she experiments with intransitive verbs and the passive voice, here the verbs are predominantly transitive and used in the active voice. This is a fitting choice since these verb forms aptly render the atemporal quality of childhood and the active nature of a child's life.
A scant five pages long and not easily available,9 it is nevertheless a key document that provides fundamental and invaluable insights into her entire work. Here, Wittig states her basic outlook, unequivocally defines her stance as a writer, and destroys a number of misconceptions that have frequently flawed discussions of her fictions. As a backward glance by an author at his/her own writingafter having reached maturity as an artistit is as valuable for the critic as, for example, Céline's Entretiens avec le Professeur Y, Ionesco's Notes et contrenotes, and Sarraute's L'Ere du soupçon.
