The diffraction of the trauma in the narration in W or the Memory of Childhood

This article intends to show how the narrative in W or the Memory of Childhood Georges Perec reflects the trauma experienced by the writer because of the disappearance of his parents during World War II. This specular work intersects with a personal narrative fiction and creates an unusual play of mirrors. Indeed, the trauma of Perec seems to be diffracted in a hidden place that is at the crossroads of the two stories. How the writer does he sets up the textual construction of his trauma? Why Perec’s trauma cannot be fixed in one place but remains suspended in writing?
