'La simultanéité du présent': Memory, History and Narrative in Andreï Makine’s Novels Le testament français and Requiem pour l’Est

2013 (English)In: MLN, ISSN 0026-7910, E-ISSN 1080-6598, Vol. 128, no 4, 881-899 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article examines the theme of memory in Andreï Makine’s novels Le testament français (1995) and Requiem pour l’Est (2000). Drawing upon Paul Ricoeur’s phenomenology of memory in La mémoire, l’histoire, l’oubli (2000), the article identifies two distinct modes of memory reflected in the novels. The first mode entails a conscious attempt to remember a past event; the second mode comprises a narrative evocation of the past. The article argues that in depicting different modes of remembrance, the novels privilege intersubjective, narrated memory, representing it as capable, when coupled with imagination and aesthetic experience, of recreating the past.
