Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject Literature - Comparative Literature, grade: 7, Leiden University, course: Literature and Law: The Questions of Doing Justice or Making Law, language: English, abstract: Central to this paper are the laws of genre, with Goodrichs text primarily as a theoretical framework. The question that arises then is twofold: First, the manner in which the laws of genre substantively are discernible in the text will be examined. Second, the interrelationship between the form of the genre of the theatrical monologue and its contents is to be studied. The in Missie examined seemingly contradictory abiding to and frustrating of the laws of genre of the apology, the antirrhetic, the word versus image, and the form of the genre as opposed to the presumptions of its content, seem to pave the way for a deliberation on the greater issue of the incertitude and ambiguity which seems to be intrinsic to every individual. Perhaps, like father Grégoire, every individual is a hybrid composite figure made up of multifarious individuals. Demonstrating the equivocation and internal instability by underscoring the constant external and internal strife in the individual and in and between all competing laws of genre in both form and content, Van Reybroucks Missie does not seem to take a normative stand.
