From 'suspicion' to reanimation: The complexity of self-representation by Joseph Matthew Janangelo( )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each narrator's attempt at self-representation is examined in terms of its conceptual limitations--limitations which highlight the division between discourse and self. The Devil to Pay in the Backlands is studied in terms of recent developments in narrative theory--developments which explain why the narrator is unable to order his random experiences into a coherent story. Passing Time is read as a dramatization of how current research in rhetorical and composition theory--specifically theories of revision and recursiveness in writing--transforms the fictional diarist from a secure "archaeologist" who believes in the permanence of the written word to a frustrated "revisionist" who cannot consign his self to the page with precision. Bluebeard is discussed in terms of its author's theories of "image-making"--Theories which have important implications for the construction and representation of identity
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
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
