Myth and the Fiction of Michel Tournier and Patrick Grainville
1999 0-7734-7938-4
This study explores the ways in which myth, in its various guises, operates in the work of two of France’s most highly regarded and popular writers, and draws attention to the similarities between their fiction and that of other novelists of the period. The study explores myth in relation to literature, music, and finally the visual image.
