Approche stylistique de la polyphonie énonciative dans le théâtre de Samuel Beckett.

Abstract : The enunciative polyphony, topic for thought of our PhD research, mentions the plurality of voices in the Speech-Only statements of the speaker/subject's speaking, if we consider the theory of linguistic polyphony by Oswald Ducrot (1980 et 1984), which was inspired by linguistic thoughts of Mikhail Bakhtin (1929/1970). This one talked about this notion for the very first time, but in a purely literary approach which he called dialogic. In this way, theory of polyphony excludes by itself the presence of a single body responsible for self-expression and extends this function to other discursive beings, which are hidden behind the only I of the speaker. The notion of enunciative polyphony in the dramatic dialogue is the area of our current research. It is estimated that even if one speaks in the first person, one can suggest in own speaking the speech (voice or the content of point of view) of someone else. That would be also interesting to see how the voices confront each other in the dramatic work of Samuel Beckett and how they let you hear the signs of other voices. Considering that the polyphony theory is now the subject of a much more linguistic approach, we can notice that much of the polyphony of the beckettian text is born out of the abundant use of the negation not (ne ... pas), of pragmatic connectors (but, perhaps, since, then) and reported speech-DR which is the fundamental junction of points of view
