HIV Stories: The Archaeology of AIDS Writing in France, 1985-1988

Jean Pierre Boulé


This book draws attention to the existence in France of an AIDS literature from 1985 to 1988 before AIDS writing became either a widely recognized genre or a culturally influential form of writing. It is a predominantly literary critical study, informed by gender studies and psychoanalytic criticism in its readings of individual texts, and interwoven with contextual information.

Keywords: France, AIDS literature, gender studies, psychoanalytic criticism, cultural influence
