(p.1) Introduction
Hervé Guibert: Voices of the Self
Liverpool University Press

This introductory chapter begins with a brief profile of Hervé Guibert. It then explains the methodology used in the present analysis of his work. In order to come to grips with the way the ‘voices of the self’ evolve and develop in Guibert's work, a chronological approach has been adopted based on a reading that follows the traditional literary genres (novel, short story, stage play, novella, and so on), if only to make the point that Guibert's work does not conform to them, or rather sits awkwardly with them. The chapter also sketches in broad outline a reply to the question of what his conception of literary creation is.
