From 'suspicion' to reanimation: The complexity of self-representation by Joseph M 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

As a "voyeur" and a self-proclaimed "chronicler," Celine de-emphasizes the fictive element of his texts, insisting upon the historical reality (re)presented in his late works. Celine nonetheless "transforms" reality. S. Doubrovsky's term "autofiction" is redefined in relation to Celine's curious mixtures of fiction and autobiographical reality: for example, the narrator's names are those of the author, and include the pseudonym "Celine" which masks both the narrator and the author
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

This work examines the corpus of Perse's poetry chronologically in order to show the evolution of the Persean text's ability to create a sur-reality. The early poems of Eloges attempt to abolish referentiality, but do not succeed in performing another reality. In Anabase, Perse succeeds in equating the poem's structure and its referent. The poems of Exil and Vents exploit aspects of the being of language itself through an identification of the essence of language with the movement of the world. Amers is a perfect "co-incidence" of the powers of the sea, love and language, as the poetic discourse itself re-creates the union of the primal energies of Being
