De la cuisine à Osnabrück : essai d’ethnocritique d’un livre d’Hélène Cixous

Abstract : Trying the ethnocriticism of Osnabrück is, firstly, foreshorten story into the reality on depicted practice, extended imagination as well as the author’s savoir-faire. Research aims at clarifying the cultural effects and the stakes of writing, and first of all, literary writing. This is all about approaching the text through cooking with its implied polysemy – place, technics, economics, aesthetic. From the home, the fireplace under the cooking pot, we explore how tradition gets passed over from one generation to another, from the mother to the daughter as well as the inexorable separation; for the narrator, this scission is concentrated in the literacy and in the project of putting Eve, her mother, in a book – presented as being a necessary betrayal regarding her origin. From this particular case, trips are operated in other written stories directly or thematically related to the previous environment, being essays or stories. After a methodological perspective, the analysis spreads out to reach many levels at the same time: the real world, the imaginary world, the diegesis creation and the book as a tangible object. The analysis is based on a concrete and experiential field: the meeting between the researcher and the writer. Here, thinking the cooking is thinking the woman, the construction of identity, a reinvented kinship but also setting the writing table and determining life stakes literally experienced again. It is also thinking about this specific form of second literacy, when the writer is so overwhelmed by the letters that those letters become life, fluids, blood: flesh
