Whereas the notions of exchange and change are often the subject of enquiry in the context of financial, linguistic or anthropological discourses, they are rarely analysed for the essential role they play in the literary domain. By exploring the ways in which change and exchange interact in French literature from the medieval period to the present day, this volume explores their fluidity and instability. Drawing on a number of conference papers presented at Queen's University Belfast in May 2008 on the theme of ex/change - a term that deliberately draws attention to the tension between these notions - the essays presented here shed new light on a neglected but underlying theme in French literature.
