La ponctuation dans le texte : parenthèses, sujets et linéarité dans l’incipit du Palace de Claude Simon

Sabine Boucheron
p. 33-40

Abstracts

We set out to deal with the question of linearity through punctuation, especially through the effects of brackets. In the incipit of Claude Simon’s Palace, it can be noticed that the linearity of language gets double. A first level, subjected to the scriptural norms of the nouveau roman, provides a hyperrealistic description of a pigeon ; a second level, brought about by brackets, reintroduces traces of subjectivity : novel characters, the modalizing subjectivity of a narrator and the thread of writing, which reappears at the heart of the text. This text is thus written along several lines, and makes it as if it was possible to avoid the language linearity which ordinarily constrains the writer.
