Project description

In this research, I would like to study the work of some major French authors (from 1945 to the present) from an ecopoetic perspective. I will describe how these authors approach ecological issues in their literary fiction and I will point out the aesthetic choices (concerning their writing style) that accompany their ecological standpoints.
