Example text

This is the way in which something like a psychology of perception might be developed for narrative analysis itself, yet it is conceivable only at the price of breaking with the kind of Cartesian attachment to visible analytic minimal unities that is reinforced by Barthes’ commentary method in S/Z; for the most interesting narrative schemata lie on the most distant circumference of the hermeneutic circle, and, like the distance that alone permits us to identify the object in a landscape of Cézanne, are never present as positivities at any moment of the text itself, their existence deducible only by inference, from the forms into which its events slowly arrange themselves.

Still, the issue is a good deal broader than that of melodrama and of the code with which Barthes associates it. In its more general form, it concerns a literary phenomenon—irony (now understood in a more local and stylistic sense than we used the term above)—in which Balzac’s text is relatively poor.

But essentially Barthes does neither of these things, and for this reason one so often has the feeling that the commentary form, or the fragmented discourse, of S/Z tends to suggest that problems have been solved at the very moment in which they are becoming interesting. Thus, to take up Barthes’ semes, or “Code of the Person,” one can certainly, as he does, make an inventory of the various indexes that a writer marshals as a kind of characterological shorthand (thus, the description of THE IDEOLOGY OF THE TEXT 31 Sarrasine’s peremptory entry into Bouchardon’s studio, besides conveying a fact that accounts for his subsequent development as a painter, functions as a manifestation of the underlying character trait Obstinacy).
