The paper is an attempt of critical interpretation of Pascal Quignard's works with special attention paid to the context of Lacan's theory that seems to be a basis for its understanding. It brings a review of main features of Quignard's writing. It gives a description of its molten form that makes his texts 'immune', resistent to critic understood also as an interpretation while music plays here a key role in giving one, coherent form to these writings. Quignard's books are empowered by its form and numerous links to ancient texts. They create and describe some specific ontological category 'between-being-and-not-being' which interacts in dialogue with notions of Lacan's psychoanalysis. This paper is an attempt to interpret this category. It is a form of a dialogue with unusual phenomenon of Pascal Quignard's works. It is written in its own language but - as Bakhtin described it - reflecting in it the language of the dialogue's partner.
