Roles creadores de los contextos en el recorrido interpretativo de los pasajes

Abstract : This article remembers two of the hypotheses proposed in text semantics. The first concerns the roles that create contexts with regard to interpretation. Interpretive practice encourages one to return problems to their context: neighborhood (syntagm, period); other passages of the text chosen by assimilation or dissimilation, and still other passages from other texts chosen as external interpreters. This interpretive contextualization permits us to validate inherent characteristics or update afferent traits by propagation. It transforms interpretation into an activity (doing) more than a result (done). The second hypothesis suggests that a work is composed of unequal sequences from a point of view that is both qualitative and quantitative. These text places are passages, in the sense that a part of the work passes through them and that the backgrounds and forms are susceptible to suffering modifications there. The purpose of this article is to cross these two hypotheses in order to test them in one or various texts: following the typology of the roles that create contexts with the idea of underlining the function of passage and to justify the plausibility of an interpretation. Among others, the texts will be extracted from the dystopic novel, The Handmaid's Tale by the Canadian writer Margaret Atwood.
