L'auto-comment-taire : un exercice d'autorité ?

Abstract : This new study of self-commentary does not focus on redefining different types of commentaries, delayed or not, serious or playful, such distinctions having been well characterised since Genette. Following more recent work, they rather tend to explore the founding ambivalence in any self-commentary. A “dangerous liaison”, the author’s commentary on his own work invites us, explicitly or not, to a suspicious reading, attentive to this undecidability of meaning that Pierre Bayard analysed for Laclos’s novel and Andrea del Sarto for a preface in the 19th century.
