As Michel Crouzet 26 writes: "Gautier can don't know how to stay alive longer. The last ones being brought 15 centuries ago are only write fantastic texts by refering to already existing fantastic texts.

This is interesting because we think idioms, which refer to whiteness in order to describe women's skin. Every text written Gautier introduces humour into Alicia Ward's description by an accumulation of com- to be comic can contain these kinds of transformations.

This comment shows a reflexive side of Gautier's humour. Indeed, some critics have already noticed that the fan- rodic distortions of this theme. The character who mins the relationship between the tastic elements in "Omphale" are used to satirise libertine novels: dead woman and her beloved is a frightening character in the other stories. Although this perspective is inter- one side, iooking out onto the sad street of Tournelles and, on the other, onto the sad esting, we think that the description of the bleak house is part of a parody.

The only thing I needed was a pretry godmother to make an acceptable and a dead woman.

Unfortunately, my godmother was 57 years old and only had three teeth. On the one side it was too much and on the other side it was too little. There is the same floral decoration, with mirrors and garlands, but for Gautier it is clearly quite out of touch with cwrent taste.

As a result of our analysis, we can assert that "Omphale" is a double rewriting of "Point de lendemain". It is the same story but it happens about one century later, which means amoenus in "Point de lendemain", it clearly changes the interpretation from horror to that the former value system has become obsolete. This time gap is a major soulce of humour.

This excerpt shows that fear also during the fantastic pafts, as a sorl of break from tension created by the story.

We, by contrast, will try to moderate this tendency On the other hand, one should remember that humor is based on anxiety.

Therefore, Gautier's detachment towards fantastic events is characteristic ofhu- However, they both share the quality of being incongruous elements in a realistic en- vironment.

In fact, incongruity is a shared characteristic of the Fantastic and humour. Gaudon, Paris: Gallimard, Folio, 1981,456-461.

The Fantastic is traditionally described as the expression of an unconsclous is happening. The foot of the pharaoh' daughter, named Hermonthis, comes back to phantasm. For Sigmund Freud 282-283 , humour is a manifestation of the superego life and shortly after that, the girl herselfappears and wants her foot back.

For me all people, including myself, who did not possess an Egyptian paperweight, were very ridiculous people. And the hue occupation of every sensible man seemed to In Gautier's "Avatar", the comic originates in the incredible confusion of the different me to have a mummy's foot upon his desk.

Luckily, I met some friends, who distracted characters' names due to their exchange of souls.

He saw The narrator's eccentric behaviour regarding the mummy's foot ends with an absurd himself being buried, listened with a well-imitated serious expression, to the speeches comment.

Even at Hermontis' appearance, Gautier keeps up his humorous tone: given at his grave, where the speaker deplored the great loss for the science. After that, he retumed to Saint-Lazare street and waited for the opening of the wi11, which he had The apparition with only one foot, the other was broken off at the ankle, was a sffange written in his favour. She walked to the table where the mummy's foot was shivering and floundering with double speed, and there she supported herself upon In "Le Pied de momie", Gautier combines once more fantastic events with humorous the edge of the desk.

I saw her eyes filled with tears. Then started between the Princess I accidentally looked at the table on which I had placed the foot of the Princess Her- Hermonthis and her foot, which appeared to be fitted with its om life, a very strange monthis.

I became quite unhappy with my acquisition, inasmuch as I it in a very old Coptic language, which is perfectly understood by the narrator.

He wished my paperweights to be in sedentary disposition, and found it quite unnatural mentions it in a hilarious remark despite the fact that he is a bit scared. The mummy's seeing feet walking without legs, and I starled to feel something similar to fear. The humorous description of the foot gamboling on the narrator's desk and his amus- ing comment about preferring sedentary feet precedes the growth of fear.

When he gets home, he notices that something brzarre paraissait d'avoir un pied de momie sur son bureau. But of course the nar:rator gladly Even when he is faced with a horrif,ing situation, he is still amusing.

Indeed, he does returns the foot to Hermonthis: not know whether it is right to oppose Paul and Alicia's marriage or whether he should Come with me to my father, he will give you a friendly welcome, for you have given let Paul marry his daughter even if it is dangerous for her.

In both cases, he might lose me back my foot. For me this offer was natural.

I quickiy slipped on a pair of smoking and drinking alcohol: Turkish slippers, and told the Princess Hermonthis that I was ready to follow her. To dismiss all these black thoughts, the commodore added some Jamaican Rum to It is also a sign of incongruity when the nalrator, wearing a dressing gown, finds his his chilled tea in his cup and brought his hookah, as a sort of innocent distraction, which look "pharaonesque".

The use ofthis neologism underlines the anachronism, which is he granted himself only in the absence of Alicia, who would be offended by the smoke another recurrent feature used to make gently fun of the narrator.

They exhibit such a prosaic In "Arria Marcella", the commodore's role is taken over by Octavien's companions.

These classical souvenirs really whetted my appetite. Let's go and guys with the suspicious eyes tried to mesmerise my niece, said the commodore.
