Sam Rohdie

Manchester University Press

The ‘author - auteur’ appears in the disjunctions and hiatuses not as the artist who creates the complete work, but rather in the formula of Godard, ‘the work and the idea of the work’, ‘the work and the theory of the work’, the presence of the author as critic and as reflecting on the work and its processes, questioning what the work is and so completely as to efface the author - in the tradition of the Nouvelle Vague.

Keywords:   the work, the idea of the work, Nouvelle Vague
