ENAG

After the Second World War, many European countries witnessed a surge of radical innovation in literature. In the wake of the historical avant-garde, the neo-avant-garde undermined genre distinctions (especially those between essay, prose, and poetry) and distinctions between literature and non-literature (other media, arts, etc.). This complex mix challenges the extant textual methods for analysis, such as narratology and poetry analysis. By combining the expertise of its partners, ENAG wants to study the transnational dynamics of the European neo-avant-garde.
