About this product
- DescriptionMarguerite Duras's writing is analogous to the surrealist endeavor, though her work is rarely compared to surrealist principles. This study proposes a detailed analysis of Duras's relationship to the male-dominated literary domain of Surrealism, founded in France in 1924 by Andre Breton. Such an approach allows a greater understanding of her work and broadens the realm of surrealist aesthetics to include the female experience. With Duras's final text C'est tout in mind, this book suggests a reevaluation of the Durassian corpus based on a comparison of the ultimate silence of her texts to the surrealist ideal of the marvelous. This study shows how Duras's work encourages a reexamination of the surrealist movement to encompass the feminine unconscious, which finds its place in the realm of silence.
