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

The concluding chapter argues that there are alternative ways of representing the self. It discusses two works, Nathalie Sarraute's Childhood and Maximillian Schell's film documentary Marlene, which feature non-narrative, dialogic approaches to self-display. The chapter concludes with the suggestion that readers respect the work of individuals who, through experimentation with form and content, are creating new metaphors for self-representation--metaphors which encourage human beings to configure the self beyond the limitations of the monologue and beyond the constraints of storytelling

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
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
