Marguerite Duras et Taïwan : transmission, médiation, réception

Abstract : This thesis discusses the transmission of the work, figure, and speech of Marguerite Duras in a Franco-Taiwanese cultural space. Starting from the reception of Marguerite Duras' work in France, this study analyses the transmission of M. Duras in Taiwan,a post-colonial society following the rules of Japan (1895-1945) and Nationalist China (1945-1996). Using a mediological approach as designed by Régis Debray, this thesis explores to what extent and by which mediations the anti colonialist discourse ofM. Duras' literary work was finally not transmitted in Taiwan, favoring instead herfeminist discourse as expressed through her cinematographic works. This may be explained by a particular configuration which began with J.-J. Annaud's cinematographic adaptation of “The lover”, which only spread in Taiwan on DVD ten years after its original release in theaters, also after the death of M. Duras who denounced the movie adaptation.A sketch is first done of the post-war literary field via a contrastive analysis of the literary trajectories of M. Duras and Jean Hougron in France after 1950, as well as the establishment of M. Duras as an essential figure of the videosphere era. A study is then conducted on the editions and translations of M. Duras' works in order to discuss the modalities of the mediation incarnated by translators and academics, the vectors of circulation in this process. Finally, in the context of Taiwan, the transmission of M. Durasis analysed through academic reviews and cultural commemorations of the centenary year of her birth, which further transmit her feminism at the expense of her anti colonialistpositions.
