Abstract

This article argues that Hélène Cixous's fictions develop a poetics of autoethnography. It argues further that this poetics explores undersides of the modern discourse of the sublime as well as limits of the authorial "I" that has been engendered by this discourse. Through a metafiction of "ghostwriting," on the one hand, and a fiction of the peopled "I," on the other, Cixous rearticulates justice and authority in ways that can reinform our understanding of these frames of reality.
