  • Marguerite Duras, revered by some and reviled by others, has become a monument in contemporary French letters The immense popular success of The Lover, translated into over thirty languages and a best seller in the U.S as well as France, established Duras internationally as a novelist of desire who both confirms and challenges the erotic impulses of her readers The LoveMarguerite Duras, revered by some and reviled by others, has become a monument in contemporary French letters The immense popular success of The Lover, translated into over thirty languages and a best seller in the U.S as well as France, established Duras internationally as a novelist of desire who both confirms and challenges the erotic impulses of her readers The Lover, however, is an integral part of five decades of fiction in which Duras returns obsessively to stories, themes, and traumatic scenes seeking to exorcise pain and discover new meanings Her work elicits a special interest at this moment in literary history because she borrows from her childhood in colonial Indochina and interrogates her experience as a woman In Marguerite Duras Revisited, Marilyn R Schuster studies the writer s fictions and films in the context of her life and culture She traces the evolution of Duras s narrative strategies from her early realist texts in the forties, her new novel experiments in the fifties and sixties, and her filmmaking in the seventies, to her autobiographical and erotic texts in the eighties and nineties While not claiming that Duras is a feminist writer, Schuster proposes a feminist reading of her work, arguing that a woman s story is always at the center of Duras s narrative Duras simultaneously exposes and is complicit with an ideology of gender, power, and desire in which woman is other to man Drawing on American feminist criticism, cultural studies, and queer theory, Schuster maintains that the figures of the colonial subject, the Jew, and the homosexual in Duras s writing are intrinsically linked to her inscription of feminine subjectivity.
