We have seen how Julien produces texts that are generically mixed, with historical narrative and letter-writing blended in different codes and styles. This could be explained, partly, by looking at the particular resources he had at his disposal. Given the pretextual constraints under which he worked, and in particular given the uneasiness generated by the task of having to construct a long text in an unfamiliar code not usually applied to such endeavours – given such constraints he produced a remarkable body of texts.
