The Fictional Gaze of a Painterly Eye (eBook)

by (Author)

  • 31,379 Words
  • 114 Pages

This book aims to answer what French author Georges Perec himself asks in his seminal series of short essays, 'The Infra-Ordinary': "How should we take account of, question, describe what happens every day and recurs every day: the banal, the quotidian, the obvious, the common, the ordinary, the infra-ordinary, the background noise, the habitual?" Following in the footsteps of Perec, questions concerning our quotidian condition in relation to the presence of the present, time and their respective flowing will be traced in this book through one of Georges Perec's other novels, Life - A User's Manual, in which a narration of a Paris apartment building and its residents is portrayed. Accordingly, the subtitle of this book is 'the Poiesis of the Presence of the Present, Time and the Quotidian', and that as viewed through the fictional gaze of a painterly eye of a protagonist that Georges Perec brought to life.
