Une esthétique du compromis : discours métalinguistique et subversion dans "L'Eugélionne" de Louky Bersianik

Louky Bersianik's L'Eugw §lionne (1976) invites women to dismantle a phallocentric symbolic order through the transgression of linguistic codes. But while Bersianik pursues a questioning of language at the level of discourse, this questioning does not reach to the level of novelistic form. Bersianik's project is thus characterized by an aesthetic of compromise that negotiates between generic exigencies and a concern for accessibility -hesitating to subject language to a more radical subversion.
