Un tournant animal dans la fiction française contemporaine ?

Abstract : If animal characters belong to a literary tradition going back to Antiquity, contemporary animal characters differ from their fictional predecessors in that they are not viewed as anthropomorphized allegorical projections of humanity, but taken seriously in both their otherness and their individualness as non-human animals. Drawing upon a corpus of contemporary fictional stories, this study sets out to identify certain narrative, enunciative and stylistic innovations consequent upon the narrative and ethical decentering at work therein. In short, the aim is to examine, most frequently within the restricted framework of “animal sequences”, the birth of a narrative that is no longer anthropocentred but zoocentred.
