Zola romancier à « l'âge de l'enquête »

Abstract : "L'âge de l'enquête" is a phrase Zola coined in 1880 in Le Roman expérimental to characterize his time. This phrase has been mentioned recently in a book by Laurent Demanze dealing with contemporary creation, seeing a connection to a "nouvel âge de l'enquête" in many narrative productions-fictional or not-of the beginning of the XXIst century. The goal is then to define precisely what enquêtes or enquiries are and to explore their meanings in the practices of XIXth-century novel writers as well as in the epistemology of the time, in order to grasp the singularity of Zola's enquête.
