From 'Suspicion' to reanimation : the complexity of self-representation by Joseph Matthew Janangelo ( )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Despite recent advances in narrative theory and research in rhetoric and composition, there is a prevalent assumption on the part of literary critics and composition theorists that an act of self-representation--the act of creating a written text out of personal experience--is a simple, uncomplicated matter. This study challenges that assumption by examining the complexity of self-representation as it is portrayed in three contemporary novels: The Devil to Pay in the Backlands by Guimaraes Rosa, Passing Time by Michel Butor, and Bluebeard by Max Frisch. These works are discussed as dramatizations of the difficulty of capturing the self in language

The narrator and the narratee in Céline's autofiction \ by Thomas C Spear ( Book )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Themes and techniques of narrational address evolve throughout Celine's works: the author becomes more directly identified with his narrator; the narratee becomes progressively visible. The narratee serves as an externalized projection of the narrator, providing him with a stimulus for heated dialogue which is often a metanarrational battle of insults and provocation. The tension in Celine's texts between the narrator and the narratee is a polemic mimicking the extra-diegetic relations of the author and his reading public with the text
Nox irae: the literary vision of Louis-Ferdinand Celine by Erika Ostrovsky ( Book )
1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Voyaging : the performance of being in the poetry of Saint-John Perse by Richard James Stroik ( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Beyond the obscurity of Saint-John Perse's language, much of the mystery of his poetry lies in the poet's quest to write "la chose meme." Critics have viewed this claim as an idealized project, as a futile attempt to overcome the ineluctibility of language's referentiality. My view is that Perse successfully combines thematic and structural elements of language to create a poetry that while grounded in reference to reality creates its own sur-reality. This poetic language can escape objective referentiality by postulating itself as "sui-referential," that which, according to Emile Benveniste, is the very nature of the speech-act
