    1 thought on “Cantatrix sopranica L : Et autres écrits scientifiques”

    1. Quite, quite mad. There is something about Perec (and very few other writers and artists) that is in common with magicians and serial killers: that they go to enormous and unfeasible lengths to achieve highly specific aims.

    2. Mostly for only the die-hard fan. More engaging than the rest, however, is the last and longest piece, a collaboration with Harry Mathews, "Roussel and Venice."

    3. An absolutely fantastic spoof on academic writing (its uniform, uniforming and self-uniforming style, its rigid format, its solemn codes, its anal retentive provision against plagiarism, its ghostly but also ghastly boundaries, its constipation, its repression, its common sense —which of course always comes across as madness, pure and simple, its pathetic peer review neurosis and its unadulterated mediocrity). Perec reproduces all of that with astonishing accuracy in a very intense parodic key [...]

    4. Hilarious. I thought that the piece on Roussel was tiring in a particularly oulipian way (cf. "Winter Journey", Rouboud's "The Loop", parts of Italo Calvino's "If on a Winter's Night a Traveler", or the stories made by a high school student trying to write like Borges), but the rest of the book is fantastic. Good to reread.

    5. Du grand Perec. Très drôle mais pas que. Il faudrait aller chercher les citations cachées et autres clins d'oeil. L'analyse du texte fictif de Raymond Roussel est un monument et donne envie d'aller voir ce que le bonhomme a réllement écrit.
