Abstract

The search for a literary space, in which to place memory and reality, questions the relationship between fiction and historical exposition in a literature in which history and its supports have their relevance. The article analyzes, in particular, two examples of the Extrême Contemporain – L’enfance est un rêve d'enfant by Régis Jauffret (Verticales / Seuil, 2004) and Une vie française by Jean-Paul Dubois (L'Olivier / Le Seuil , 2004) - in which the changing notion of history, subject to time, becomes an uncontrollable exigency of narration. These situations range from the paradoxical reconstruction of events that actually happened, yet distorted by every ideological screen, to the hypothesis of a chronicle of an ephemeral lower-case “je”. They always set the story to the present, making it fragile and very short and approach the actions of one-time individuals only through memory, revealing that there is no story in the novels where history is very present.
