The heirs can deny, can distance themselves from an era, or to the contrary can live with its phantoms, can be in the proper sense of the word haunted by it; can transform it and carry it into the future. In a postscript on the final page of the book, the following notice appears:. Like Marin, who dreams of clandestinely composing a text from the assembled works of classic twentieth-century French writers, Molia smuggles quotations from twenty-six illustrious predecessors into his own novel. Some of those citations are relatively easy to pick out: for example, when Marin and Gaspard descend into the underworld of Paradise, a few lines taken directly from Proust serve as their password.
Marguerite Yourcenar? I no longer remember precisely are neither cited nor rewritten in the novel. But I was convinced that someone would find them in there anyways. The cat-and-mouse game takes on another level, as the hunt for citations becomes more complex. The reader may well start second-guessing the accuracy of his or her conclusions: are certain passages truly citations from other writers, or does the expectation of finding something lead us to erroneous identifications?

It would be staggeringly difficult for a reader to discover all of the citations buried within the text. At the same time, Molia is not simply trying to create a puzzle for the reader, for his use of citation is also a strategy to come to terms with the literary heritage of the twentieth century.
Through the citation and rewriting of his literary predecessors, Molia inserts their words into a new context, making them mean something new. Italo Calvino remarks that while all literature is inherently combinatorial, it continually attempts to make something new out of its combinations.
He had toyed with the idea of a book that would chart the course of the twentieth century through these figures relegated to the margins of time, these beings who had never been, it seemed, carried by the major movement of History, these minor beings, or rather consigned to minority by the course of events […]. Unlike religious or political discourses, which rely on a language of certainty, the novelist is in a state of permanent questioning.
Which requires on the part of the reader a distance, a state of vigilance. The question of interpretation comes to the forefront as the reader navigates through the dense web of references to the real world and to the realm of literature. If reactionary thought relies on a nostalgic, idealized version of the past, literature can help us problematize and critique such simplistic narratives. While Molia makes no claims to provide easy answers to the political issues that confront French society, he makes a compelling case for the enduring power of the novel to help us make sense of the past and to imagine possible futures, as we contemplate what might come next.

She looked like Marianne. They all looked like Marianne. La jeune fille le regarda. Il se croyait apte, maintenant. Face au deuil, plusieurs voies sont possibles. But surely literature is constantly straining to escape from the bonds of this finite quantity, surely literature is constantly struggling to say something that it does not know how to say, something that cannot be said, something it does not know, something that cannot be known?

Based on the award-winning, five-volume reference, Existentialism For Beginners is a lighthearted romp through the history of a philosophical movement that had broad-reaching influence on Western culture, politics and the arts during the period of midth century through the late 20th century, and still exerts influence in the 21st century.
Tracing its beginning with close-up views of seminal 19th century writers like Kierkegaard, Dostoevsky and Nietzsche, Existentialism For Beginners follows the trail of existential thought and literature Through the decades, this eye focused on Africa in the s, the tragic fate of the Spanish Republicans, and the victory of the Chinese Communists.
