L’écriture de Nathalie Sarraute

Abstract : Our study is divided into two parts. the first part of analysis consists in the different literary devices used by N. Sarraute : internal point of view, the anti-hero and the ambivalent character of his psychology, some metaphors (of the sap, the atom, the chain and the pocket) taken to analyze the mechanism of the "inwards movements" of the subconscious, the pattern of repetition which gives full expression to the words, the popular tales which are the literary sources of n. Sarraute's works where she tries to represent the image of someone in quest for truth and happiness, the use of the demonstrative "cela", the punctuation, the enumeration of adjectives which imparts a psychological intensity to her text, key-words which consist in words with the privative prefix in , the effect of disparity created by foreign expressions and at last, diminutives. The second part provides a reflexion on the value of N. Sarraute's novels as works of art. What is at stake, on the one hand, the "privileged relationship between the writer and his reader established by Diderot, the precursor of the modern novel. As a matter of fact, the writing of Diderot and of Sarraute expresses the freedom of literary creation: the suppression of the distance between the writer and his reader enables them to reach a purity of communication
