Title of Thesis/Project/Extended Essay Author signature) name) date)   BSTR CT The structural significance of space in E.M. Forsterts A Passage to India places the text in a material context seemingly denied by the novel s more theological themes. Through the development of a materialist poetics of the novel organized around space, a text such as Passage to India yields the voices of those figures whose material existence s deprivileged by the authority of the dominant narrative voice. spatial poetics of the novel arises from the operation of the body in signification which links the symbolic code of language with the material world. Two critical traditions link the material body to discourse: the Freudian tradition describes the socialization of the body through the identification and valorization of the spaces between subjects; the Bakhtinian tradition describes the body through the dimensionality and chronotope (space-time orientation) revealed in the subject s discourse. Julia Kristeva, particularly in her Revolution in Poetic Language, brings Bakhtin s dimensional body under the influence of the transformations of Freudian discursive practice. The result is a highly spatialized subject participating in a revolutionary literary practice which overturns the social order of language.
