The Bus’ Tour The Life’s Tour: Interpretation of The Bus from Narrative Perspective

Lin-wen HUANG


One chief concern of critics on Singer is whether he is a modernist. The wealth of subject matter and narrative invention in his fictions are often mentioned. These two factors are decisive to understand Singer’s works’ modernism. Here I chose a short story The Bus for example to analyze how the focalization helps to enrich the themes in it.
Key words: modernism, focalizer, focalized
Résumé: La modernité de l’oeuvre de’Isaac Bashevis Singer est bien contestée dans le milieu critique. Les critiques parlent souvent du thème varié et de la narration créative de Singer, qui constituent la clé pour comprendre la modernité de son oeuvre. Prenant sa nouvelle Le bus de voyage comme exemple, l’article présent tente d’explorer le rôle de la focalisation dans l’approfondissement du thème.
Mots-Clés: modernité, focalisateur, focalisé
