Porte close ou seuil franchi : le féminin secret dans la poétique de Céline
Over the course of this study, we argue that Céline positions the multiple versions of the hero-narrator at the thresholds of environments favorable to a game of synthetic creation with these elements undertaken in and of the prose itself. Our exploration of the textual workings and resulting stylistic features of the synthetic creation process shows the central role that the feminine, or feminized, characters and their associated language play in the emotive resonance of Céline's prose.
