Peut-on encore parler d’un style-Minuit à l’orée du XXIe siècle (Éric Chevillard, Éric Laurrent, Laurent Mauvignier, Marie NDiaye et Tanguy Viel) ?

Abstract : In the early twenty-first century, the “style-Minuit” can be first approached as a critical construction. Indeed, since the fifties literary movement called the Nouveau Roman (the New Novel), also known as the Minuit School, books published by Editions de Minuit have been received by the literary world as homogeneous productions. Thus, the “impassive” or “minimalist” writers, then the “ludic” ones would have followed the Nouveaux Romanciers and upto the nineties, the mythical publisher, Jérôme Lindon, would have discovered three stylistic schools. Literary critics also contribute to perpetuate the idea of a style-Minuit in the media and between 1999 and 2009 journalists have depicted the Minuit-style as a stereotypical socio-critical object through a metaphorical and metonymical discourse playing constantly with several meanings of the word “style”. However, if we restrict the meaning of style to what makes “an event in language”, can we still pretend there would be a “style-Minuit”? Examining on both a diachronic and a synchronic level the literary language of a generation of writers all born between 1964 and 1973 (Éric Chevillard, Éric Laurrent, Laurent Mauvignier, Marie NDiaye et Tanguy Viel) reveals a common pattern composed by similar stylistic figures. Therefore a deep analysis of punctuation, syntax and discourse makes it possible to highlight first the linguistic uniqueness of each writer but also the convergences of some stylistic practices which properly delimit the collective “style- Minuit”.
