Ecrire la division : Une lecture de la trilogie d'Agota Kristof

Abstract : By using a minimal language but a very complex narrative structure, Agota Kristof's trilogy stages the mental division which is operated by the historical fracture through war and totalitarism, and all the kinds of exile the entailed. The consequences of this fracture are numerous, and deeply reach the narrator's identity as well as his relation to language and to the world. The fact that a fiction is tied up to another one - and then to a third one - creates some geology, each layer of which gives shape to one aspect of division. Through fiction writing, elements which are part of a very dark and shattered universe can be gathered and structured in their multiples dimensions, where a paradox is taking shape, and which comes from the totalitarian ideology by denying the individual and his world. Through the narrative organisation of the work, the reader actually feels this paradox and is induced to actively penetrate it.
