    Abstract:
    This paper analyses the category of space in Fanny Taillandier’s last novel Par les écrans du monde. We argue that Taillandier tries to “make sense” of 9/11 terrorist attack through a stylistic recomposition of the dimension of space, while situating it in a “geometry of words” that makes it meaningful and human again. In effect, in Taillandier’s novel, the devastation and the final regeneration of the city are conveyed by a verbal picture, where images that constantly flow in the media find a solidity that no “digital modeling” (Taillandier) could reach, being the digital representation only able to show (and rationalize) chaos. Literature, on the other hand, bears human life. Our theoretical framework is the “Geopoetic” approach, as it is conceived by Kenneth White, Michel Collot and the Canadian research group of Marcello Vitali-Rosati and Servanne Montjour.
