Description

The central focus of this study is "writing the self" as demonstrated in the works of three prominent contemporary French fiction writers: Nathalie Sarraute's "Enfance", Marguerite Duras's "L'Amant", and Alain Robbe-Grillet's "Le Miroir que revient, Angelique ou L'enchantment" and "Les Derniers jours de Corinthe". These works present new ways of looking at the world, the self, and the literary text. The concept of autobiography is examined within the framework of such related genres as confessions, memoirs, the intimate journal, and the self-portrait.
