Rhétorique de la science-fiction

Abstract : The study of science-fiction follows the principal division of classical rhetoric. Invention (content) : science fiction has no theme of its own except that of the individual in the face of authority, the context of a science fiction text is a collection of metaphors arranged under the form of allegory. Composition (structure): a science fiction text often consists of various literary devices, such as cut up, ellipsis, jigsaws, suspense. Elocution (stylistics): the study of large range of vocabulary, of a reduced syntax and stylistics devices (mostly figures of thought not of word as is the case in classical literature). Action (metatext): the study of titles, acknowledgements, first and fourth covers pages. Here, one must add a definition: science fiction is definite by is relationship or opposition with literature, non-mainstream literature, science, the literature of the fantastic and anticipation.
