IMO, reading for the imagery itself is enough for the first time. An establishing shot sets the scene.

In the Labyrinth

This is greatly to be enjoyed. I was actually a little disappointed in those chapters; I preferred the sense of confusion, and when Robbe-Grillet got more explicit it almost felt like he was cheating me of the chance to figure things together for myself.

A child stands at a lamppost, silent and unhelpful. This is a marvelous romp between an author and his many attempts to create a narrative before finally abandoning the attempt. I can tell you that. Did i like the book, though? A man with a fur-lined coat and an umbrella. Silent snowfall, even vocalizations, called speech, might not be auditory.

The camera quickly pulls in on a particular object, staying with labyrinthf through a long close-up. Phillip rated it really liked it Mar 03, As a hypertext, the infinite robbe-gfillet which the author uses as a metaphor for reading itself would find its perfect formal complement. Dizzying and often beautiful, more accessible on first reading than Jealousy, but maybe that’s because I read Jealousy first. One of the best books I’ve read. Outside it is snowing. Instead, one slowly pieces together the story and the emotional experience of jealousy in the repetition of descriptions, the attention to odd details, and the breaks in repetitions.


Most of the novel is taken up by exacting, detailed descriptions of various physical objects in the main characters’ vicinity, rapidly and with no indication shifting back and forth in chronological time. It’s all his thoughts. A simplistic plot less summary.

While I can understand why many people would dislike this novel, I have always found it inspiring. A boy with a cape. It’s a very unique narrative technique, and one that on the surface sounds kind of gimmicky, but in practice is really effective in giving a sense of labyrlnthe and dread.

Almost every character and location and object seems to have a double somewhere in the novel, and it’s never quite clear what’s a coincidence and robbe-grullet an invention of the dying mind of our feverish protagonist. He jumpcuts from nexus to nexus within a city with plenty of buildings but without landmarks. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

Lists with This Book. The growing obsession of the soldier to complete his mission becomes the reader’s own through the handling of the narrative technique: It’s an etching, the eye ingests the patrons, bartender, and waitress within one. It will be easy for me because there are no people moving robbee-grillet the streets with the soldier.

Taher Khorshidi rated robbe-griklet really liked it Sep 03, A soldier trudges through the streets of an unfamiliar city, carrying a mysterious package on a journey to a street he can’t remember. So rather than giving a strict narrative, the reader has to infer one from these descriptions, which is a bit easier than it sounds, but still requires very active reading.

On the tabletop the wine glass has left circular impressions in the dust. Inigo Montoya rated it really liked it Mar 29, If there is anyone out there who has studied or thought about the relationship between this author and Virginia Woolf, the existentialists and rap please contact me. Fitting the pieces of narrative and description together within me, as i encountered them, satisfied me.

In the Labyrinth

Essays on Fictionin which he outlines his theories of fiction as art. There are a lot of things reasonably labyrinhe from novels and stories in general; most of those things seem to be or actually are missing. He was trained as an agricultural engineer.

A strange experimental read that feels like a half-forgotten memory. Alain Robbe-Grillet was a French writer and filmmaker.

Wounded, suffering from exhaustion, prey to an ever-worsening fever, and aware that the enemy is about to enter the city, the soldier must find his way among the maze-like streets to deliver a package whose contents he does not know. Robbr-grillet novel plays on the comforting expectations of the realist novel only to frustrate and finally overturn them.

Dans Le Labyrinthe by Robbe-Grillet, Alain

The initial few months were seen by Robbe-Grillet as something of a holiday, since in between the very rudimentary training he was given to operate the machinery he had free time to go to the theatre and the opera. Inside we are in the labyrinth. I don’t blame anyone for disliking this book. The narrative would thus change labyrintje reading to reading without the reader actually knowing how or in exactly what way it has changed.
