Summary/Abstract: This article analyses the modern vision of silence and its representation in Valère Novarina’s “holed writing”. His “verbal drama” aims todeprive the language of its communicative utilities and to restore its autonomy and theatricality, through the silence of structure and the silence of meaning. The Novarina’s silence, destined for the stage and the space, is manifested in the word itself, in the act of speaking, and in the breath.
