Silence, Parole, Ecriture, poétique de l’imaginaire dans l’oeuvre romanesque de Louis Guilloux

Abstract : Louis Guilloux's novels have often been read as different accounts of the society of their time. However, his works did not get the analysis which aim at identifying its deep unity. Yet it obeys a poetics based on its author's imagination, structured around three poles, notably described through their relationship to time. The author's obsessional forces trigger dynamic patterns which structure his whole creation. A singular writing of silence creates texts about moments of harmony, where time seems abolished while speech keeps on generating socio-historical conflicts. Caught in this dialectic, the protagonists are defined by their relationship to an overwhelming silence and an imperious speech. Nevertheless, the discovery and exploration of third way of the author's imagination gradually overcome these antagonistic forces : the way of the game of the fictional creation where writing's self-generating in a quest of bond between the narrator and his reader imposes itself. Thus the progressive discovery of his fictional universe allowed the author to overcome the notion of time seen as hostile by substituting the possibility to tame it through writing.
