Abstract [en]

This article examines representations and issues of the "irrational" in recent novels by contemporary women writers in French (Claire Castillon, Carole Martinez and Marie NDiaye). It examines how the irrational imaginary specific to these works, which is built up through the sensitivity of female characters, raises issues that concern not only the affective construction of the protagonists but also the social identification, the relations of human-beings and the hierarchy of powers. Specific implications of the irrational regarding gendered hierarchy and affecting women in particular are discussed. The analysis shows how the irrational is constructed as the transformation of a traumatic social experience of the protagonists.

Abstract [fr]

Dans un corpus composé de romans récents (Eux et Les Pêchers de Claire Castillon, Du Domaine des Murmures et La Terre qui penche de Carole Martinez et Ladivine de Marie NDiaye), j’examine comment l’imaginaire propre à ces œuvres soulève, à travers la sensibilité de personnages féminins, des questions qui concernent non seulement la construction affective des protagonistes mais aussi l’identification sociale, les relations de l’humain et la hiérarchie des pouvoirs. Les stratégies narratives sont sondées sous l’angle de théories féministes et posthumanistes. L’analyse montre comment l’irrationnel est construit comme la transformation d’une expérience sociale traumatique des protagonistes.
