Abstract:
This thesis concerns the autobiographical writing of Michel Leiris (1901-1980), Georges Perec (1936-1982), and Marcel Bénabou (1939-). The thesis interrogates the idea that idenitity is 'in play' for all three interrelated writers. Identity being 'in play' carries with it the suggestion from French of 'en jeu'. I will demonstrate the ways in which identity is not only 'in play', but 'at stake' for Leiris, Perec, and Bénabou.
