For MacLean, our know-how of the doubling of expertise “makes us conscious that the fictitious speaks now not the true however the actual” (101). If “the real” is the results of linguistic doubling, “true” needs to be assumed to intend transcendental Signifier. The excerpt given the following, during which MacLean discusses prose by means of Baudelaire, paints a shiny photo of MacLean’s knowing of narrative fiction because the area par excellence of doubling and thereby the signifier: [t]he concrete atmosphere of the café is defined when it comes to the maximum theatricality, in lights, ornament, portray, hangings, statuary.

This atmosphere of fictional large quantity, the second one kind of narrative area, is iconically coupled with the 5th kind of area, the proliferation of the textual signifiers. the only lengthy sentence from “Even the gaslight” to “gluttony” is a syntactic and rhetorical journey de strength, the place the cumulative impression of the elaborated binary and ternary styles, an structure of basic signifiers, parallels the semantic content material. either signifiers and signifieds acquire in a build-up to the devastating ultimate signal, “gluttony,” which sums up the entire house.
