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 ... Cranstons own cultural memory is particularly rich and crosses the frontiers of separate linguistic frames.
