9780312011994: Claude Simon and the Transgressions of Modern Art

Modernity is characterized by the relentless impulse of transgression. It breaks out of the restrictive frame of Aristotelian unity which is intrinsic to the realist convention in art. The novels of Claude Simon, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1985, explore the creative possibilities generated by transgression and by the associative power of language. The author considers his work important for its illumination of some of the underlying features of modern art. Michael Evans' study combines an analysis of Simon's novels from "La Route des Flandres" to "Les Georgiques" with a wider discussion of four critical concepts crucial to an understanding of modern poetics: frame, intertextuality, materiality and self-reflexivity.
