OUELLET, Pierre. The art of slowness: Hastening of history. Tóp. Sem [online]. 2011, n.26, pp.25-57. ISSN 2594-0619.

In this paper, it is suggested that due to the speed with which events come about, time of History has precipitated and fallen, in such a way that its sediments slow down or stop what has been called progress. In this order of things, literature and art give witness to events that must be described in sociopolitical, ethnophenomenological and semioesthetic terms, which at the same time represent their own "time-out" and, upon doing this, take time of History from its accelerated course. This proposal is illustrated through the analysis of the novel Éden, Éden, Éden by Pierre Guyotat, which contradicts all causal logic and dissolves all hierarchy through certain discoursal resources.
