Les Mythobiographies Mineures De Patrick Modiano
Entre Le Labyrinthe Et Le Rhizome
This book makes reference to a theoretical reflection on themes of mythocriticism, the philosophy of language and the individual, and places the work of Modiano within the context of two metaphors - the mythical labyrinth and its postmodernist variant, Deleuze's rhizome. These two figures present a skillful revision of the concepts of myth, truth, identity and otherness in prose. This makes it possible to treat the autobiographical and autofictional dimension of Mondiano's work not as an attempt to create the author's fictional or real identity, but as the coming of being of his ethical identity.

What Reviewers Are Saying
"... In many ways, Dr. Thiel-Janczuk shows how the classical myth is transformed and parodied by Modiano, how the quest becomes a game, a puzzle...." - Professor Annelies Schulte Nordholt, Leiden University"
