Abstract

D'Arcy McNickle was a remarkable man in many respects; an administrator, historian, anthropologist and novelist, he left his mark in many different fields. Franco Meli presents McNickle's work as a novelist, stressing that in many Native American novels, the protagonist comes back home, returns to his Indian roots. Meli interprets McNickle's novels as depicting a tribal rather than an individual definition of « being ». D'Arcy McNickle était un homme remarquable à bien des égards; administrateur, historien, anthropologue et romancier, il a laissé sa marque dans de nombreux domaines. Franco Meli présente l'œuvre de McNickle romancier en soulignant que dans de nombreux ouvrages de fiction écrits par des Indiens le héros rentre chez lui, revient vers ses racines indiennes. Meli voit dans les romans de McNickle l'évocation d'une conscience tribale plutôt qu'individuelle.
