Abstract

La critique a peut-être trop rapidement rangé J.D. Salinger parmi les réalistes du milieu du XXe siècle. Cet article a pour but de montrer qu'il est, au contraire, l'un des grands précurseurs du mouvement anti-réaliste. En effet, sous une surface anodine, Pretty Mouth And Green My Eyes se révèle être une véritable entreprise de dislocation du signe et démontre la volonté de l'auteur de faire éclater les formes traditionnelles du récit. So far Salinger has usually been ranked among the realists of the midtwentieth century, probably for want of a more adequate rating. In this article my aim is to show that Pretty Mouth And Green My Eyes provides a good opportunity to re-examine Salinger's place in American fiction. As a matter-of-fact, this short story testifies, under a trivial surface, to Salinger's dismissal of the traditional forms of the narrative and his attempt at breaking up the time-honored trinity of the sign in the early 50's.
