«Archaeology» of Memory in J. Ruo’s novel «Fields of Glory»

Cover Page


The article deals with the aspects of creating a new form of autobiographism in the works of the French writer, J. Ruo. The author studies material “tracks” of time and changes into a “memory archaeologist”. A new approach to the memory discourse is characterized by presenting an invented intrigue, a circular and tangled model of the novel, the extensive usage of intercontextuality and play on words while searching for eluding meanings. The novel turns into the history of palimpsest. The irony proves the “trumped-up” style of the novel intrigue.
