Discourse resistance is one of the important functions which can provide the required space for the growth and transcendence of discourse. Resistance negates affirmative and stabilized status so that new perspective be provided for the discourse movement. This perspective with the help of discourse practice paves the way for the transcendental presence of the actors. In such circumstances, discourse actions also find the possibility of movement, change, and birth. Resistance re-defines the power of discourse and leads to its modification, stabilization, or intensification. Resistance is the important function of discourse. In this novel, different aspects of resistance are represented and the realms of discourse put various energies to the flow of discourse by influencing on each other. In this paper, various types of resistance are analyzed in The Drowned and their characteristics are examined accordingly. The main question is what are the most important types of resistance in The Drowned and what characteristics and functions do these types? Furthermore, what features and elements do the realms of discourse in this novel in order to create resistance? For this purpose, the present paper aims to analyze the resistive features of discourse from the perspective of semiotics to explain the formation conditions and transcendence of signification. This study shows that, there are many types of resistance such as mythical, transcendental, phenomenological, and resistance related to tension and identity. It shows that the realms of discourse are constantly re-assigned depending on the strength and energy injected into them.
