Politique et écriture dans l'oeuvre de Marguerite Duras

Abstract : The political aspect of the durassian works makes an impact through its importance, permanence and its remarkable use of ambiguity. However, despite the undeniable relationship between the texts and politics, Marguerite Duras is, on no account, a political writer. Not one of her works could strictly speaking be seen as a political programme or doctrine, not even during the period when she was a member of a political party. At some stage or another, all of the works express a rejection of organized thought and analysis. The majority of their portray screams and silences. If the works were be examined from a perspective that threads through a half of a century, then it would appear that, although they deal with important events, they are not reported at their corresponding point of history and are subject to ambiguity. They are characterized by a tendency toward withdrawal and the subversion of reality, because through her writing, Marguerite Duras works to a poetic engagement end poetic depiction of reality. Since she is opposed through writing to all power, she is also opposed to the rules of writing. Through this general emancipation, durassian thought and form progress toward indifference and indifferencied to seize the whole of the work and of the world.
