Perec reproduces all of that with astonishing accuracy in a very intense parodic key that sopanica manages to sustain for the entirety of the book.
He is all out to get academia, sopranicq we should all be.
Of course being him and Oulipo of which I’d never read a thing until this book, but I did know a bit about the crazy things they were up to, that gang of clever, clever peoplebeing him and Oulipo: The book isn’t written with the sole purpose of turning everything despicable about academic writing into an object of unashamed mockery, but it is also, sopranics, a way of telling extremely moving stories.
Each of those formally constipated and, for that reason, extremely canatrix academic papers, is a profoundly beautiful story in cajtatrix, so you have both parody of the kind that will make you laugh out loud in public places, and food for the imagination, for thought, like you find in you when you read Romeo soprnaica Juliet or, more accurately, Romeo and Giulio, and not in Verona but in Venice here I’m referring specifically to the last “scientific paper” in the compilation, “Roussel and Venice: Outline of a Melancholy Geography.

Georges Perec was a highly-regarded French novelist, filmmaker and essayist. He was a member of the Oulipo group. Many of his novels and essays abound with experimental wordplay, lists and attempts at classification, and they are usually tinged with melancholy.
He was a distant relative of the Yiddish writer Isaac Leib Peretz.

Perec’s first novel, Les Choses Things: A Story of the Sixties was awarded the Prix Renaudot in The 99 chapters of this page piece move like a knight’s tour of a chessboard around the room plan of a Paris apartment building, describing the rooms and stairwell and telling the stories of the inhabitants.
