Entre programme et processus : le dynamisme de l'écriture flaubertienne. Quelques points de méthode

Abstract : Between programme and process : the dynamism of Flaubert's way of writing. Some methodological points.

Taking as its starting point the structural opposition between two great systems of writing ("programmed writing" and "processive writing"), this article seeks to characterise the distinctive rythm of Flaubert's writing winthin his rough drafts. The analysis of this genetic stage brings to light the existence of recurrent ternary structures — or "angular phases". Each one of these constitutes a closed and coherent whole that consistently links the paradigmatic and syntagmatic axes, first in a prospective phase of structural development, then within a more restricted redactional development, and finally in a moment of "recopiage" that includes a retrospective dimension. The identification of the principles and consequences of this interactive alternation allows us to define Flaubert's way of writing as a "dynamic programmed writing".
