Summary:This study of Claude Simon proposes a reading of Simon's work based on the premise that his novels are as much written adventures as adventures in language. Special attention is paid to the major novels of the 1980s, The Georgics and The Acacia. Simon's development is set in the context of the intellectual and critical debates in which his novels were written and first read, from Jean Ricardou's formalism to post-structuralism, intertextuality and psychoanalytic theory.
