Abstract

This master thesis aims to demonstrate that the personal diary, as a structure where several systems of signs can converge and seen from the point of view of evocation, can contribute to the structuring of a new hermeneutic figuration. For the purpose of this thesis, we analyze the limit of the literary fragment using the philosophical point of view of the Whole as a possible dynamic of restitution. Beyond this limit, we explore the emptiness that lays ahead, in the hope of, once again, recreating the Whole. References made to music (opera) throughout the diary, will be studied as a never ending "mise en abîme". We will use Lucien Dällenbach's methodology to detect and decode excerpts of Giuseppe Verdi's Trouvere and Richard Wagner's Rienzi within the diary. Throughout this thesis, we will suggest that textual and musical resonance between the word, the utterance and the code, allow for the creation of a system whose components are perpetually moving. For a better description of this system and in order to make the mechanism of sequences and resonance more clearly visible, we propose to consider this system as a fractal. This will enable us to constitute a system based on Henriette Dessaulles' diary (a "Dessaullien System"), a system erected using the science of fractals. The parameter of this system is the literary fragment, the unknown factor is the music and the interface is philosophy
