Zola Et Le Texte Naturaliste En Europe Et Aux Ameriques
Genericite, Intertextualite Et Influences
The contributors of this book seek to answer various questions such as what is the relationship between Emile Zola's naturalist project and traditional generic classifications? If the "Naturalist" novel, as theorized in "Le Roman Experimental" (1880) was to break with earlier literary traditions in its emphasis on modern scientific methods and the depiction of contemporary society, were traditional genres and literary devices to disappear entirely? The contributors identify traces of earlier genres and subgenres and other discourses that interfere and interact with the mimetic intention of these works.
