Reflexivity and Revolution in the New Novel: Claude Ollier's Fictional Cycle
The eight novel in Claude Ollier's fictional cycle Le Jeu d'enfant (Child's play/game) are linked by a complex pattern of reccurring characters, structures, situations and passages that form an investigation into the nature and functioning of fiction itself. The principal thread binding the works is a male protagonist who in various guises journeys through alien, threatening environments. Simultaneously, Ollier leads his reader into an exploration of the nature of alien texts that disrupt and undermine the traditional forms and procedures of the novel in an effort to create a revolutionary way of writing and reading fiction.
