    Abstract:
    Death, as well as sleep, seem to leave us facing the category of the unspeakable. This paper aims at studying Proust’s novel from this point of view, examining the paradox of a writing that crosses the threshold between what can be said and “what cannot be said but must nevertheless be heard” (Blanchot). We intend to analyze the discursive and rhetoric strategies that allow Proust to take up this challenge, overcoming the apparent aporia of language through the “fecundity” (Jankélévitch) of style, moving from the unutterable to the ineffable.
