The Impossible Novel

Roland Barthes, The Preparation of the Novel, 2003

Will I really write a Novel? I’ll answer this and only this. I’ll proceed as if I were going to write one. …It’s therefore possible that the Novel will remain at the level of — or be exhausted by — its Preparation. Another title for this course … could be “The Impossible Novel.”
