Marked by both ethical concerns and a certain aesthetic disquietude, such works, which we will name "critical fictions", question literary history and interrogate their own writing practice, thus guiding us from the "age of suspicion" to the age of scruple. dominique viart (1) C. greenBerg, Art et Culture [Art and
