IDENTITY AND MARGINALITY IN MON NOM BY EUGÈNE
MetadataShow full item record
The novel My Name is an egotistical work. The metaphor of the mirror is symbolic in the quest of the self. Desillusioned and lucid about his its marginality, the author–narrator scrutinizes his past. He is writing secretly, “compressing” the time and using his thousand words of French vocabulary. The most expressive figure in the novel is the silence or lack of words. In conclusion, Eugène makes us think that men do not have to become dictionaries, or polyglots, leading the dialogue.
