Vers une poétique du "récit de filiation" contemporain : autour de La Place d'Annie Ernaux et des Vies Minuscules de Pierre Michon

Abstract : This doctoral work is intended to be a comparative approach in contemporary French literature. The title of the project: « Towards a poetics of the contemporary "récit de filiation": around La Place (Gallimard, 1983) by Annie Ernaux and Vies minuscule (Gallimard, 1984) by Pierre Michon" will be the expression synthetic as well as critical of an attempt to approach, identify and evaluate a non-irrelevant part of this burgeoning literature. It will first be an opportunity to show the characteristics, challenges and limits of the "récit de filiation", an expression coined by Dominique Viart in an article that dates from 1999. Then, starting from these results, we will explain the literary and scientific interest of the study of the two bookis of our corpus and how they are perfectly representative of the birth of this genre in the early 80s, which will concretely translate into the quantitative and qualitative success that must be interpreted as the undeniable proof that this contemporary period tries, through this genre, to grasp some deep reasons for his being and his future. This research will deliberately use an approach that will implement analytical tools belonging to several distinct but complementary fields: literary history, general and comparative literature, sociology, ethnology, anthropology and poetics intimate writing. This choice is at the same time motivated by the initial formation received in Modern Letters, and imposed by the nature of the subject; a multidisciplinary reading of this emerging literature and this emerging genre will become an evidence. Moreover, in order to better understand the problematic, we will also adopt historical, generic, thematic, stylistic and narratological approaches.
