Pierre Guyotat, la littérature et la loi

Abstract : This thesis makes the connection between literature and law (legal, critic, symbolic) in the works of Pierre Guyotat. From the banning act (Eden), the law hides an essential point : a primary act which is all at once the birth of the language and the law it would be the signifier of. The fiction in Guyotat's books is like a parodic repetition of the Freudian fiction about primitive murder, so that the whole of his fiction works can be considered as a tautological repetition of a first and primal scene. The phantasmagoria of the prostitution production seems to be the other side of the primitive murder and does affect the representation function of the language. Instead of expecting the reconciliation from the metaphor, the "new language" repeats infinitely the results of the punishment to set its positivity : that's "Babel Heureuse". The processes of confusion, far from writing the fault as unforgivable, make it possible to consider Punishment as the good luck of the language.
