Complexity and Hybridity in Nancy Huston’s Two Novels’ Dolce agonia and Lignes de faille. A Study at the Crossroads of Semiology and Transculturality. (English)
Abstract [fr]

Comment peut-on aborder la complexité narrative des romans de Nancy Huston, écrivaine se

situant à cheval entre deux cultures, surtout si elle est doublée d’une hybridité symptomatique

de notre époque marquée par les connexions entre différentes cultures? À travers une étude

entrecroisant les théories structuralistes/sémiologiques, en particulier les écrits relativement

récents de Jacques Fontanille qui remet l’énonciation au coeur du processus narratif, et la

perspective transculturelle, ce mémoire s’intéresse à la spécificité de l’écriture de Huston, et

plus largement celle des récits à caractère transculturel. Débutant avec la présentation des

deux champs d’études choisis et l’identification des points de contact existant entre eux, le

travail laisse ensuite place à l’analyse de deux romans de Huston, soit Dolce agonia (2001) et

Lignes de faille (2006). Enfin, grâce au nouvel éclairage que les études transculturelles

peuvent apporter aux théories structuralistes/sémiologiques, il est possible de reconsidérer le

processus énonciatif dans les romans à caractère transculturel et d’ainsi confirmer leur statut

de récits complexes et hybrides.

Abstract [en]

How is it possible to approach the narrative complexity in the novels of Nancy Huston, a

writer positionning herself between two cultures, especially if that complexity is reinforced by

hybridization, a phenomenon that represents our time marked by connections between

different cultures? Through a study crossing structuralist/semiological theories, particularly

the more recent writings of Jacques Fontanille who sets back the enonciation in the heart of

the narrative process, and a transcultural perspective, this essay tries to understand the

specificity of Nancy Huston’s writing, and in a larger perspective the specificity of

transcultural narratives. The text begins with the presentation of the two chosen disciplines as

well as the identification of some contact points between them, followed by the analysis of

two of Nancy Huston’s novels, Dolce agonia (2001) and Lignes de faille (2006). Finally, with

the new perspective brought by the transcultural studies on the structuralist/semiological

theories, it is possible to reconsider the enonciative process in trancultural novels and to

confirm in that way their status as complex and hybrid narratives.
