Abstract: This article try to demonstrate how the silence takes shape: it becomes a dangerous character against whom the narrator has to act. In The Children’s Chamber, the silence is at first an ally, helping the young Georges to resist to the other children who want him to talk. Then it becomes a dangerous character who takes more and more space : the adulte who spies the children from the begining of the novel has to interrumpt their game in order to stop the silence.
