Jacqueline Harpman's transgressive dystopian fantastic in ‘moi qui n'ai pas connu les hommes’: Between familiar territory and unknown worlds

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Moi qui n'ai pas connu les hommes, a text set in a barren post-apocalyptic landscape, resists easy genre classification. Given the various narrative turns, thematic concerns, and bleak ending, the article examines its credentials as a fantastic dystopian tale, highlighting in the process the various ways in which it is situated generically, formally, and thematically as a liminal 'in-between' work, a positioning which would appear to confirm certain theoretical positions advanced in the literature on the fantastic.
