Interdisciplinary readings: Anne Bandry et Catherine Paulin

Short stories rely a lot on the implicit. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the adjective implicit as follows: “capable of being understood from something else though unexpressed: implied; involved in the nature of something though not revealed, expressed, or developed: potential”. We will look at what is suggested in two short stories “Swans” and “The Painted Drum”, what is forming part of something without being directly expressed. Allusions, insinuations, connotations, implicatures…, all that is inferred by the reader without being fully expressed in the text will be at the heart of this seminar in which both texts will be tackled from the angle of discourse pragmatics, of the relationship between text and reader.
On the one hand, there are presuppositions, or, in other terms, all the elements of information which are automatically retrieved from an utterance. On the other hand, there are elements, implicit or implied, which constitute what the text is indirectly about. The implicit is at work in metaphorical or metonymic structuring. It is also at work in the interpretation of the text that goes beyond what it says explicitly or even intentionally.
