Arriving from Paris after having crossed the Beauce plains and meadows of the Maine, the traveler crosses the "border" of Brittany. He quickly perceives that things are not quite the same. Is this an illusion or reality? This "border," however is neither precise nor is it marked on the ground. On the contrary, it would seem that the border is a continuing one: one crosses intermediate zones, a bit like certain legendary heroes when they leave the rational world to penetrate what is called the "other world," those mysterious regions lighted by the fires of a sun which never lights the face of the world. Julien Gracq, in his tale entitled La Presqu 'île, eloquently described this slow and haunting intrusion into a timeless Brittany, starting from the calm and peaceful valleys of Anjou. But this concerns southern Brittany, near the Loire river, this river which springs from the heart of France and flows and expands between its and bars, making its way to the ocean. The ocean seems further and further away, inaccessible like the island of AvaUon, where King Arthur lies dormant, waiting for the day when a hand, caressing his forehead, wiU wake him and show him the way towards a new life streaming with sunshine. Towards the north, while Mom-Saint-Michel rises above the haze, evoking the terrible battle between the forces of Ught and the dragon of darkness, the heretofore straight road begins to wind through blocks of granite which seem to have fallen from another planet. This is a strange land. Northern Brittany is a stretch of land seemingly yanked from the sea. The Dol marshes seem to illustrate how fragile it artu-aUy is. No one has ever felt or expressed the profound essence of this area better than Chateaubriand, himself a child of the Amorican peninsula. He described this country between heaven and earth with the sentiment of belonging to a marginal race, living in a region which had nothing in common with regions surrounding it. He wrote: "Brittany, until now little known in our history, formed the western extremity of France, a state different from the rest of the kingdom due to its genius, its customs and the language of part of its inhabitants." Still today, in spite of the time gone by since Chateaubriand relived this ancient Armorique, this description is still valid and up to date. "This long peninsula, wild in appearance, is singularly unique with its narrow valleys, where non-navigable streams bathe the ruins of castle towers, with Its old abbeys, thatched roofed cottages where herds live freely with their shepherds." Yet, Today Brittany is the largest agricultural region in the entire European Community. It is the region where modernization is most present. But the old Brittany, that of Chateaubriand and the ancient bards, those poets clothed in a past who sang of the country, is still present. It strikes the traveler as soon as he crosses the "border". There is a sort of miracle which takes place. This "border", is that of the former dukedom of Brittany, one of the oldest lands in Europe. The Dukedom of Brittany only took the place of a former realm, itself bom of the uniting of small realms which well pre-date the reign of Clovis. Due to this, Brittany constituted a sovereign state for a long period of time. It was completely separate from the kingdom of France and totally outside of it. At the end of the XV century, when King Charles VDI wanted to take over the dukedom of Brittany, he was solemnly warned by his advisors and his legislators: an annexation would be illegal because Brittany was not a province of the French crown, thus royal power would be weakened. Brittany was a state in the modern sense of the word, before the Merovingian royalty construaed France on the rubble of the Roman Empire in the far West. The miracle is that Brittany, torn between France and England for so many cen-
