The Text S Play On text s play on power dynamics 1784 Remember thatThis novel written in the stage play style seen above combined with freuent asides by an omniscient brassy narrator tells the story of real life storytelling as depicted in written form Diderot breaks down the common motifs of the stock novel holding its cliches in one hand and the reality of conversing with other human beings in the other The dialogue is the same interrupted rambling ndless swirl of words that we tend to find in actual attempts at

#off with a #with a of the despising of the thing they are creating Maybe that s it Exclusive Interview with Denis Diderot Author and PhilosopherReader Can you tell us a little about how this book took shape Mr DiderotDD There s not much to tell All I know is that one day two figures on horseback appeared on the page before me and it soon became clear that the one called Jacues he was definitely a Jacues was the servant of the otherR Were Don uichotte and his servant Sancho Panza an inspiration perhapsDD Who knows what connections there are between what we ve read previously and what we find on the page in front of us It s true that Jacues and his master seemed to go together from the beginning like uichotte and Sancho the one definitely couldn t Cardiovascular Pet: Current Concepts exist without the otherR Right So you had the two characters What happened next DD Well since they were riding along a road together they found themselves conversing R So you decided to write the story in the form of a dialogueDD One of the characters seemed to like telling stories and as the other seemed to be a good listener and knew how to ask leading uestions a dialogue was inevitable I d sayR Inevitable That s funny in the context of this book But we ll come back to that later Right now I want to ask you about your characters journey You say at the beginning that it wasn t important where they had been or where they were going but you must have had some idea where you wanted them tond upDD Not at all I just knew there were two characters who seemed to be on a journey I trusted that one or other or both would know where they were going I was as much in the dark as
the readerR Hmm Since you ve mentioned the reader can I ask why you digressed soreaderR Hmm Since you ve mentioned the reader can I ask why you digressed so from the story that Jacues was telling his master and started to tell the reader your own stories ones that were completely unrelated to Jacues story so that the book became a series of nested stories a bit in the style of Tristram ShandyDD It s like this I took advantage of the various times that Jacues got interrupted in his story to insert some story ideas I had lying about on my desk And Sterne s book was on my desk too incidentallyR Saying you were taking advantage of the interruptions is surely a bit disingenuous it was you who created those interruptions after allDD Such as when Jacues horse took off across a field That horse had a mind of his own you know Even Jacues couldn t control him and we all know how stubborn Jacues wasR Oh yes I very much njoyed watching how well Jacues resisted his master s fforts to get him to continue the story of his love life when he didn t feel like talking He really was a very stubborn character But you could have made him continue couldn t you Why didn t you DD As I say he gave me good opportunities to use material I had lying about and hadn t yet found a use forR And then you decided to make Jacues and his master or less switch roles Why did you do that DD Oh well that switch happened after the story telling session in the hostelry and had little to do with me uite a bit to do with la Dive Bouteille I d imagine If the E bueno y de malo nos acontece auí abajo A Companion to Peter Martyr Vermigli escritostaba allí arribaJacues The Best Four Years: How to Survive and Thrive in College (and Life) el fatalista ponen juego varias historias dentro de la historia algunas paralelas otras convergentes pero todas magistralmente articuladas Todas llas se insertan n un universo donde xisten la. .
