John Mc Gahern's The Pornographer or the representation of Nothingness: An attempt to overcome Irish parochialism

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroContributo a convegno

Abstract

The essay focuses on the "modern" consciousness of the main character of McGahern's novel “The Pornographer”. The intimate ambiguity of this consciousness is dramatized through the role of the pornographer, that is to say the author of bad writing, but also this definition has an ambiguous meaning in so far as pornography seems to be the only real, even if paradoxical opposition to death thanks to its technique of nothingness. In fact, in its technical description, it offers the way of systematizing the values of vacuity.
