Such literary units have earned Wittig the acclaim of her critics and peers—Marguerite Duras, Mary McCarthy, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Nathalie Sarraute, and Claude Simon, to call a few. While studying the intrinsic worth of every of Wittig’s fictions individually, Erika Ostrovsky strains the revolutionary improvement of Wittig’s significant literary units as they seem and reappear in her fictions. Ostrovsky keeps that the seeds of these thoughts that seem in Wittig’s most modern texts are available way back to L’Opoponax.
