Le roman de la mâle-versation

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: Fictions du masculin dans les littératures occidentales
  • Author: Barde (Cyril)
  • Abstract: La Curée presents itself as the degraded epic of the speculator. These businessmen – upstart adventurers seeking to conquer a new Paris – embody the emergence of a new « business » masculinity whose fragile prestige is founded on speculation. If speculation is a synonym for domination and predation, it also signifies projection, instability, and falsification. Business masculinity, which cannot be separated from this fiction, thus becomes a form of misappropriation or embezzlement.
