Abstract

PUTTING THE GREAT WAR INTO THE NARRATIVE:SÉBASTIEN JAPRISOT’S A VERY LONG ENGAGEMENT

This article is devoted to the study of Sébastien Japrisot’s novel Un long dimanche de fiançailles (A Very Long Engagement) that belongs to the current of literature denouncing the military authorities’ abuses during the First World War. The article concentrates on the novel’s narrative devices, especially on the relations between the narrator and the protagonist’s discourse, with the intention to demonstrate that the narrator voluntarily renounces his enunciative authority, thus sharing the protagonists’ value system. In the context of the topical tendency to question the Great War’s events, the narrator’s egalitarian attitude seems eloquent, in that it legitimates the discourse that condemns the very notion of authority.
