“Robbe-Grillet’s theories constitute the most ambitious aesthetic program since Surrealism.”—John Updike
“Robbe-Grillet is important because he has attacked the last bastion of the traditional art of writing: the organization of literary space”—Roland Barthes
“Alain Robbe-Grillet is the forerunner of a revolution more radical than Romanticism and Naturalism were in their time.”—Claude Mauriac
Here, in one volume, are two remarkable novels by the chief spokesman of the so-called “new novel” which has caused such discussion and aroused such controversy.
This volume, which offers incisive essays on Robbe-Grillet by Professor Bruce Morrissette of the University of Chicago and by French critics Roland Barthes and Anne Minor, also contains a helpful bibliography of writings by and about the author.
