Abstract

This book is the first synthesis of the influence of the Second World War on the birth of Oulipo and the literary creation of its main actors, including leading writers such as Raymond Queneau, Georges Perec and Jacques Roubaud. It sheds new light on the history of this literary group, and especially on the works of Perec and Roubaud, two of the most significant writers of recent decades. It brings together French and North American academics, which makes it possible to compare views and methods, and thus to propose a plural approach to the subject. It also includes an important interview with Jacques Roubaud and Olivier Salon, about the prehistory and genesis of the movement, during the Occupation and the Liberation.
