"The Sketches of a Budding Writer: Emerging from the Chrysalis"

Abstract : The article focuses on the sketches written by Dorothy Richardson between 1908 and 1914. It analyses their specificities as sketches before focusing on their thematic contents, in particular the highly complex and intricate spatial and temporal dimensions at work. Starting with ecological philosophy, I go beyond it to examine moments in the sketches when the conventional Western conception of the subject is discarded and another type of individuation seems to be at work. The goal of the article is to show in what precise ways the sketches helped Richardson shape the writing of the novel she was about to launch into.
