Keywords: monism | body | voice | sight | desire

Marguerite Duras rejects dualism, philosophical and religious cleavage between human body and mind, the latter being the only positive connotations. His work rehabilitates the body, against which literary representations are too often the mark of original sin. His materialist monism result of his thinking atheist combined with the influence that Eastern philosophy may have had on her during the first eighteen years of his life spent on the Asian continent. Durassian fiction, while it celebrates the body, is a hymn to the purity of desire, innocence and sensuality. The scriptural movement itself is a bodily act: love and writing go together, the difference between them "nonexistent. "
