(p.1) Introduction: Con/textualising the Corpus
Annie Ernaux
Liverpool University Press

This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this book, which is about the works of French author Annie Ernau, and provides a close reading of several of her works including Les Armoires vides, Ce qu'ils disent ou rien, and L'Evénement. It suggests that Ernaux's writing points up a number of important areas in contemporary critical thought including particularly fluid manifestations in the realm of autobiography, and that while her works are auto/biographical, they do not constitute autobiographies but posit a metonymic relationship between narrator and author.

Keywords:   Annie Ernaux, French author, Les Armoires vides, Ce qu'ils disent, L'Evénement, autobiography, narrator and author
