L’élémentaire, langue de l’inconnu

Abstract : The fictional world of Sylvie Germain is haunted by what went before, at both the textual and ontological levels: a secret life of primal elements, which manifests itself through the recurring theme of inscriptions. This study therefore chooses to look at the topos of Liber mundi, reused in Sylvie Germain 's uni erse within the context of modernity. In pieces and illegible in parts, this Liber mundi gives the writer the opportunity to carry out a radical exploration: i.e. of the unknown that is dea h - her aim in one of her latest texts, Le Monde sans vous. "Siberian Variations" (in Le Monde sans vous) which becomes the space in which language is redefined, a language, which, beyond the curse of Babel, re-establishes a link with the primal elements.
