L'espace Sensoriel Chez Albert Camus
1995 0-7734-9398-0
This study examines the sensory space of La Mort heureuse, L'Etranger, La Peste, and Noces through textual analysis. The texts are examined as systems of signs where articulations and functions are reconstructed through a narratological approach of the sensory space. The sensory space is developed not only as a composite of the written space but is also inscribed within the text. The figurative writing of the sensory language with its metaphor and metonymy enables us to attribute to it the characteristics of prose and poetry simultaneously.
