A text apart in his work where, free of any coquettishness, he questions the creation and responds to the reproach of dispersion that has been addressed to him: " I've been looking for 30 years.
The Umbilical Cordon is the one that connects the creator to his characters during the development of a work, and which must then be cut off so that the creatures he has spawned, his "sons", as he calls them, live their lives to them, on the stage or in the minds of the readers, who appropriate them and modify them in return.
