Le témoin précaire et l'événement dans les romans d'Adam Thorpe

Abstract : British writer Adam Thorpe's fiction is fractured as well as structured by the notion of gap between the subject and what we decided to call the 'pre-Histories'. This work, relying on the notion of interval, examines the dialectics between fracture and suture, showing its extension to narrativity, subjectivity and historicity. Faced with a work that keeps interrogating the question of the limit in a ceaseless effort to combine disjunction with conjonction, disconnection with reconnection, especially between the fragments and silences of the small and big history, the purpose of this thesis is to introduce the figure of the witness, understood here in a literary, philosophical and anthropological sense in order to shed light on the precariousness of relationality.
