The presence of U+201CletteredU+201D memory and the literary history of the present in the U+201Ccabinets des lettrésU+201D of contemporary French literature

Academic approaches of the narrative prose of contemporary French authors such as Quignard, Macé, Michon, Bergounioux and Puech usually stress the erudition of these writers, highlighting their continued interaction with the (French) literary tradition and the critical-theoretical canon. Via textual as well as contextual analysis, this research aims to determine to what extent the writers themselves consent and/or conform to this particular perception of their literary project.
