Summary/Abstract: The text, which includes translated excerpts from Charles Nodier’s novel Smarra, or The Demons of Night, attempts to present a reading of the fantastic world depicted by Nodier interpreted through Sartre’s essay “Aminadab, or The Fantastic Considered as a Language”: it covers the whole universe and cannot remain at the level of the event. It represents the inverted image of the union between soul and body, and the rebellion of the tools against the goals. This inverted world amounts to a different way of seeing our human reality
