A political history of writing in France during the interwar period and under the Occupation. Rubinstein argues that the prevalent leftist depiction of the ENS?the training ground par excellence of the French intellectual?is symptomatically inaccurate in its repression of the role of writing in the construction of the political subject. Through a deconstructive reading of the ENS as text, Rubinstein resituates the ENS's intellectual discourse within the literary politics of the right. Normalien discourse is seen to articulate analogous concepts of superiority, hierarchy, and exclusion. This twinning of principles of political and textual authority is developed through analyses of publishing networks of the thirties and the post-war trial sentencing of intellectuals.
Inhaltsangabe: In this study, the author connects pedagogical and literary institutions to issues of writing, political position and power. She suggests that the leftist caricature of the Ecole Normale Superieure (ENS), the training ground for French intellectuals, is inaccurate because it represses the role of writing. By deconstructing the ENS as one would a text, she garners from the writing of the "normaliens" a picture of an institution that reinforces superiority, exclusivity and hierarchy. Towards the end of the book, Rubenstein relates the irony of the post-World War II trials of "normaliens" in which authors become victims of their own writing. She also turns the tables on the ENS, calling upon its own writings to reveal its rightist ideological positions.
