    Abstract

    Alain Robbe-Grillet’s contribution to the development of contemporary writing has been seminal, both in terms of his own ground-breaking novels and essays, and as a result of his “leadership” of the nouveau roman movement of writers. From the late 1950s onwards, along with Claude Simon, Michel Butor and Nathalie Sarraute (and to some degree Marguerite Duras), this group of writers effectively challenged the prevailing orthodoxies of traditional realist and psychological fiction, and helped to create the conditions for a new aesthetic, which would have wide intellectual repercussions.
