All Her Sons: Duras, Anti-literature, and the Outside

  • James S. Williams


It is clear that the portion of Duras’s literary work post-1980 not published by Minuit ‘passes’ in very different ways from écriture courante. At the risk of gross over-simplification, it is unhindered by narrative constraints, resists the heterosexual configurations of textual difference, and does not engage with intertextual ‘Great Men’. A brief overview of Duras’s major non-Minuit texts of this period can illustrate the point.
