170 French Studies THE TWENTIETH CENTURY SINCE 1945 By H . G. McIn tyre , Lecturer in French, University of Strathclyde 1. Ge ne ral C. W. Nettelbeck, ‘Novelists and their engagement with history: some contemporary French cases’, AJFS, 35 : 243–57, looks at how four chosen novelists — Modiano (Dora Bruder), Le Cle ´zio (Poisson d’or), Echenoz (Un an), and Darrieussecq ( Truismes) — deal with socio- political realities and contribute to the larger process of reshaping France’s sense of its own past. Noting the obvious diVerences between them, N. illustrates how these writers treat various experiences or examples of social exclusion — wartime deportation of the Jews, unemployment, immigration — and use their art to facilitate the integration of these experiences into the French, longer-term collect- ive memory. J. Kaempfer, ‘Le latin des Nouveaux Romanciers’, Po´ etique, 113 : 45–59, cautions against the easy assumption that ‘de ´pre ´dations burlesques’ of Latin and classical learning in Simon, Pinget, and Butor indicate the nouveau roman’s contempt for tradition. On the contrary, a more circumspect consideration of allusion and intertextuality in general reveals the ‘relations complexes et ambigues’ which these texts maintain with the classical and Christian Latin tradition
