This thesis was based on the concept : the black block of Marguerite Duras. She frequently mentioned in her books and in the interview with Alain Vircondelet or Laure Adler that there is something unknown inward which influenced her when she was writing. Accrording to these documents, this research start with some questions: what is the black block to Duras? How can it has a great effect on her works? Is this the reason that we can’t find any order in her writing? Or is it a power intrinsic? From these questions, this thesis is going to discuss the meaning of writing and the black block to Duras. And how do they effect on her writings and memories.
In the second part, we choose four themes: mother, water, lover and death from the series of The Lover to take up why Duras was described these four over and over, brought these versions variant. Then, by means of these similarities and dissimilarities, we are trying to analyse the fiction and reality in her books. Between these versions variant, Duras bends her efforts for writing, to recall something important and return to the question original in the life – life and death.
In the end, we look forward to making a different point of view to read these novels-the self-writing. Through this way, to realize how she devote herself to writing, to explore her internal.
