Prof. Isabelle Daunais, of McGill’s Département de langue et littérature françaises and Canada Research Chair in the Esthetics and Art of the Novel, engaged with these questions to critical acclaim in her 2015 book, Le roman sans aventure (Les Éditions du Boréal), and they continue to inform her research today.
