By Samuel Beckett
Mercier et Camier nous invitent au voyage. l. a. contrée qu'ils vont parcourir, une île jamais nommée, est parfaitement reconnaissable. C'est l'Irlande, merveilleusement décrite ici, avec ses landes de bruyères, les jetées de ses ports lancées vers le huge pour enlacer l. a. mer, ses sentiers parmi les tourbières, les écluses du canal de Dublin, tout un paysage si cher à Samuel Beckett et si souvent présent en filigrane dans toute son œuvre. Le yet du voyage de Mercier et Camier n'est guère précis. Il s'agit « d'aller de l'avant ». Ils sont en quête d'un ailleurs qui, par nature même, s'abolit dès qu'il est atteint. Leurs préparatifs ont été extrêmement minutieux, mais rien ne se passe tout à fait comme prévu. Il faut d'abord parvenir à partir, ce qui n'est pas une mince affaire. Il faudra ensuite rebrousser chemin pour moins mal se remettre en direction derechef. Il pleuvra énormément tout au lengthy du voyage.

C'est qu'il faut du braveness pour affronter leurs rencontres souvent périlleuses avec des personnages extravagants, cocasses ou inquiétants, voire hostiles, au aspect qu'un meurtre sera commis. De quiproquos en malentendus, de querelles en réconciliations, ainsi va le consistent discussion entre Mercier et Camier qui devisent et divaguent chemin faisant. Mercier et Camier sont unis dans l'épreuve et, si différents que soient leurs caractères, ils semblent à jamais indissociables. Cette solidarité survivra-t-elle aux péripéties du voyage ? Où vont-ils aboutir et peuvent-ils demeurer inchangés au terme d'une pérégrination si mouvementée ? Écrit en français en 1946, Mercier et Camier est paru en 1970.
