Series created in 2000 and supervised by Dominique Viart.
The Perspectives series offers new contributions to critical works concerned with 20th century literature. It gathers reference studies on contemporary literature whose academic values are highlighted and reinforced. Taking into account all literature genres and their relationships with other artistic forms and cultural disciplines, this series brings together the most innovative works of French and foreign researchers.
Antoine Volodine relates with both a narrative power and a singular relationship to history which are no longer a mystery. However, his language - which has never been extensively studied - is little known.
