Description

Close analyses of some of Marguerite Duras' early works (Le Marin de Gibraltar, Les Petits Chevaux de
Tarquinia, Le Square) followed by readings of Les Yeux bleus cheveux noirs and Le Douleur. "The texts
chosen by Cranston are particularly challenging and are 'read' by her in the light of Duras' own statements
concerning the nature of the literary endeavor," writes Germaine Brée in her Preface. "Cranston explores 
the many levels of linguistic play and resonance, the ambiguities of Duras...Cranston's own cultural
memory is particularly rich and crosses the frontiers of separate linguistic frames."
