Since Auerbach's Mimesis it has become accepted that literary history can be constituted in terms of the enactment of different modes of representation. The work of Laurent Mauvignier in particular lends itself to a consideration of this issue, which it considers through the lens of an intersemiotic transpositional space between different artistic modes : cinema, the theater and photography. Such an intermedial practice aims to go beyond the verbal level of meaning, embracing both the auditory and visual. Having as its theme the trauma of the Algerian war, Mauvignier's novel Des hommes largely limits itself to an account of actions, postures, movements, bursts of light and colour, voices, noises and silences, which all in fact operate as the narrative's true actants.
