Sample text

En 1853 il est même contraint à l’exil. Rejoignant le plus célèbre des insulaires forcés, Allix traverse un bras de Manche et rallie Jersey. Le père Hugo l’y reçoit souvent. On sait que l’écrivain aimait à faire parler les tables (dialoguant, comme par hasard, avec Jésus-Christ ou Napoléon) : Allix fait partie des invités à ces séances de spiritisme. Las, notre communiste calotin est pris d’une crise d’hystérie qui l’exclut des soirées hugoliennes. Malgré une amnistie et un retour à Paris en 1860, la santé mentale de Jules Allix ne s’améliore guère.

Avec mes tenues d’arlequin et mes parades potaches, je cadrais mal. J’y suis resté deux ans. Me voilà ensuite plus au centre, rue des Martyrs, dans une coquette maison de ville, au fond d’une cour encaissée. Quitte à opter pour un quartier bobo, autant choisir le bobo vraiment bourgeois, vraiment looké, vraiment hédoniste. Le bobo qui aime passer deux heures à choisir son saucisson, son kouglof. Il y a mille huit cents ans, saint Denis gravissait ce sentier de forêt, résolu à perdre la tête. Aujourd’hui, les martyrs céphalophores ont fait place aux bourgeois bohèmes.

Le préfet de police Delessert fit fermer les lieux en 1843. Nombreux sont les animaux ayant donné leur nom à une rue. Avant l’époque des célébrations abusives et du culte mémoriel, les Parisiens nommaient ce qu’ils voyaient. Ainsi la rue de l’Hôtel-Colbert, à deux pas de la Seine et de la Cité, était-elle la « rue des Rats ». Des rats qui étaient évidemment une plaie parisienne, surtout en temps d’épidémie. Dans le quartier des Halles, ils sont longtemps restés une vermine. Et malgré le dessin animé Ratatouille, les rats constituent encore une espèce à abattre, comme en témoigne la mythique société de dératisation de Julien Aurouze, créée en 1872, au 8, rue des Halles.
