Présence Francophone: Revue internationale de langue et de littérature


The article seeks to revisit the interpretation of L’aventure ambiguë by proposing a reading that goes well beyond a simple binarism opposing tradition and modernity.

Such approach allows the work to escape the prison house of contingency and to remain open and meaningful in different times and spaces.
