L’écrivain et la société : le discours social dans la littérature française du XVIIIème siècle à aujourd’hui

Abstract : Studying the relationship between arts, especially between literature and sociology it’s very commun nowadays. Sociology is a discipline that developped with the begining of the nineteenth century and reached it’s thoroughness in the twentieth century with the merge of social sciences. In my thesis, I want to stress out the dialogue between literature and sociology, without falling into a sociology of littérature or vice versa. I want to show how sociology inspired from literary works using them as a practical support for its theories on social life, but also how literary works Mirror by their containts the habits of and era, the social environment of writers at that time. In order to do that, I have chosen to base my analysis on some French literary works begining with the eighteenth century untill nowadays. From Montesquieu to Annie Eranux I would like to point out the more fertile interactions between literature and sociology, while analyzing the relations between social sciences and the literary field. My subject gets even more interesting nowadays, especially when universities are reviewing their course of study : literature’s situation as a discipline is at stake here, and also sociology’s, as sociology just like literature has the function of « telling» life.
