Des vies infimes aux folies infâmes. Le tournant des années cinquante dans l'oeuvre de Duras, des Viaducs de la Seine-et-Oise à L’Amante anglaise

Abstract : Inspired by the case of Amélie Rabilloud, Duras gave voice and visibility to an otherwise gray, insignificant woman, testing the limits of the paradoxical “vérité des ténèbres” (“truth of obscurity”). To do so, she wrote and re-wrote not the fait divers, but the attempt to comprehend the crime. The invention of the “interrogator” in L’Amante anglaise serves to question psychiatric and legal qualifications, and to celebrate the generous, disinterested act of listening that alone allows the speaker to be heard.
