FRANKEN KURZEN, Clemens August. The growing parody of detective fiction by Alain Robbe-Grillet. Alpha [online]. 2017, n.45, pp.139-155. ISSN 0718-2201.

The paper provides a brief bio-bibliographical background of the French author Alain Robbe-Grillet and analyses in depth the basic principles of the ‘New French Novel’. It accounts for its conventional time and space breach and looks into its presence in his first two novels; The erasers and Jealousy, which still bear some traces of the detective fiction. This literary analysis exposes their hybrid and postmodern character and the growing parody being made of the police genre.

Keywords : Alain Robbe-Grillet; Nouveau Roman; detective fiction; parody.
