L'énonciation du sujet dans les romans de Julien Green, Moïra et L'Autre

Abstract : In this book, we think of a discursive and gestural side of the character in the two novels of Julian Green, Moïra and L¤Autre. The character, although invented by the author, assumes an autonomous role in relation to the voice of narrator. Under this angle, we can analyze the direct speech as well as the free indirect speech. These are the linguistic forms by which the fictitious subject origin expresses his individual idea which contardicts often the first intention of the enunciative speaker who are the narrator and implied author. This phenomenon results from the novelistic conception of the author who tries to represent the conscious subject alive for the reader. The experiance of the character in the novel arises by the dream or psyhcological splitting. These are due to mental suffering of the fictitious subject who commits a hideous act to an other subject, but which is ineviatble as for he realise that he is a sinful man. He is only a carnal being destined for the death. The sin commited by the fictitious subject is a stage which opens a way to the experimental knowledge. So, the writing of the sin becomes a leitmotiv of the novel. Finally, the death of the heroine in L'Autre like that of Moïra can be interpreted as a consequence of the human being in sin. They come to recognize their fleeting existence. But the death which they undergo throws light on their human being of finiteness which is doomed, from the very beginning, to his disappearance. That is the moment where cross the death of heroine and the end of his imaginary narration
