|NARRATION AND SUBJECTIVITY IN CONTEMPORARY FRENCH LITERATURE|
|Written by CARMEN PETCU|
ABSTRACT. As Veivo puts it, the city was a central theme in modern French literature (characterized from Baudelaire to Verhaeren and beyond by the figures of le flâneur and la foule). Bourdieu asks us to beware of constituting the first signs of the institutionalizing of the writer's person as the indices of a sort of absolute beginning, as the appearance of specific instances of consecration. Meretoja says that the nouveaux romanciers repudiate storytelling in the name of a new realism (i.e. in order to bring forth the fundamentally chaotic, fragmentary nature of reality).
