Et si c'était moi ? : approche de l'autofiction dans la décennie 1980

Abstract : How can we deal with autofiction, this complex notion defined in the 70' thanks the intuitions of serge Doubrovsky and Philippe Lejeune? Neither deliberate lie nor simple novelistic transposition, autofiction mixes in the same text the narrative techniques of fiction and autobiography. this is how biographic by Navarre, “la Douleur” by Duras, prelude, choral et fugue by Schaeffer, and l”e livre brisé” by serge Doubrovsky show similarities between a classical autobiographical project based on memory research an introspection. the specific requirement for sincerity can even express a true challenge and come face to face with a confession painful and excessive at the same time, the stylistic research and the complexity of the narration correspond to a literary ambition which transforms the story of the life into a raw material which will be later on used in a novelistic manner. It would somehow be difficult to distinguish between autofiction and autobiographic novel it the author himself did not point out his owns hesitations and doubts which make the reader pass from the autobiographical pole to the fictional pole. his interventions indicate the importance of a third fundamental distinctive feature in autofiction : the metadiscourse which implies duplication and duality on the one hand, it enables the author to define and justify what he writes in a transparently clear way for the reader; on the other hand, because of its contradictory statements and its great mirrored representations, metadiscourse make us doubt and cause disruptions for the implied reader.
