Rehistorifier la postmodernité. La réécriture du mythe contre la fin de l'Histoire dans "Érec et Énide" de Manuel Vázquez Montalbán

Abstract : In his last fiction published in 2002, Manuel Vázquez Montalbán pursued his novelistic commitment to "rehistorify postmodernity", through the rewriting of the medieval myth of Erec and Enide. We analyze here how he invests this gesture of rewriting as a journey towards the medieval origins of European culture, while establishing it as a device of critical analysis of several resolutely contemporary ends: end of history, end of transition Democratic and political ideologies of the twentieth century, but also the end of amorous utopia, even going so far as to envisage the possible end of the anthropological meaning of literary creation. His version of the myth created by Chrétien de Troyes thus configures the agreed and entertaining genre of the "campus novel" into a true "thesis novel".
