This thesis analyses the notion of time in Jeanette Winterson’s Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit and Sexing the Cherry in order to demonstrate how the form and content of these novels show her changing views towards the nature of time and its relation to history. Therefore, the study construes the temporal narrative fluxes and the explorations of time and history in these novels, by investigating the character-narrators’ internal and external journeys. It does a Deleuzian reading of the novels in line with Deleuze’s three syntheses of time that appear in close interaction with his notions of repetition and difference. Such an inquiry reveals how and why in Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit the ideas in the first synthesis prevails whereas the ideas in the third synthesis come forth in Sexing the Cherry. Ultimately, the study asserts that Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit illustrates how the intradiegetic narrator Jeanette inclines towards the familiar in life by holding onto the repetition of the habits and the expectations within the living present. On the other hand, Sexing the Cherry displays how the narrators’ conflicting approaches towards time blend together ultimately within the character-narrator Jordan’s pursuit of the unknown in the empty time and the eternal return of difference. Thus, the thesis reveals two differing but complementary instances that shed light on evolving views on the nature of time and history.

In the Still of the Moment: Deleuze's Phenomena of Motionless Time
Shores, Corry Michael (2014-05-01)
A process philosophical interpretation of Deleuze's theories of time encounters problems when formulating an account of Deleuze's portrayal of temporality in The Time-Image, where time is understood as having the structure of instantaneity and simultaneity. I remedy this shortcoming of process philosophical readings by formulating a phenomenological interpretation of Deleuze's second synthesis of time. By employing Deleuze's logic of affirmative synthetic disjunction in combination with his differential cal...
