Le silence de l’enfant comme révélateur du poids de l’Histoire

Abstract : Michèle Gazier’s novel, The Silent Girl, is crossed by a heavy silence which symbolizes a questioning: how to speak about a dark period of History everyone bears a trace ? This is what we explore first observing the setting –a french village– which is based on a dichotomy between isolation and overinterpretation of signs. Then, we will see how the eruption of the child’s character imposes itself as a transgressive force. Finally, we will understand how the work puts forward a reflexion on the manner this child reveals the burden of History.
