Abstract

This essay studies Ducasse’s various stylistic strategies for triggering the reader’s pleasure, or lack thereof. By considering Riffaterre’s concept of style, I demonstrate that Ducasse’s sentence organization and word choice underscore negation. Analyzing a passage from canto three highlights the stylistic means used to hinder the reader’s pleasure.
