Modernist Fiction and the French Nouveau Roman: Transnational Connections

Annalisa Federici (Università di Perugia)

Abstract

Questo saggio propone uno studio comparativo della narrativa modernista e del Nouveau Roman basato su una serie di tratti comuni che permettono di considerare i due fenomeni letterari come manifestazioni di una medesima temperie culturale. Per di più, la menzione esplicita da parte dei Nouveaux Romanciers dei romanzieri modernisti come illustri precursori evidenzia interessanti parallelismi, nonché un rapporto di continuità. Tale approccio analizza il loro legame in termini di ricezione e assimilazione di un modello, e si presta ad uno studio incrociato dei sorprendenti punti di contatto tra le ricerche della Woolf e della Sarraute contrapposte a quelle, non meno simili, di Joyce e Butor.
