Abstract

When one reads the theory of Alain Robbe-Grillet, particularly that expounded in Pour un Nouveau Roman, one becomes aware that the descriptions of man in the world are phenomenological. A similar discovery comes when one reads his novels, which he has called the New Novel. I have used as examples Le Voyeur, La Jalousie, and Dans le Labyrinthe. The phenomenology that becomes evident in the theory and the novels of Robbe-Grillet is that of Maurice Merleau-Ponty.
