This study of the narrative and stylistic characteristics of all the major works by Marguerite Duras shows how Duras critiques and subverts dominant discourse through close textual readings with a particular focus on women's access to language. Duras' textual strategies are described within a discussion of narrativity which also addresses factors of race and class. Cohen demonstrates how Duras achieves the famous ritual atmosphere of her prose through precise techniques which connect to her critique of representation.
