Abstract (2. Language):
Patrick Modiano takes a special place in the French literature of post-modernism, as due to his creative work, beginning with his initial works, he has been showing a net picture of post-modernism world outlook.
From the very first steps in literature, he stated about himself, about his personal creative way. In each and other of his works, his creative manner, his world outlook is shown fuller and brighter. Modiano confuses the reader, plays a game with him, and the reader cannot find a traditional “hero” in his novel, positive or negative, who he is used to associate with. Nearly all Modiano‟s novels are autobiographical ones and are being written in the first person. He is able to set a contact with a reader, speak with him in private and as if about himself.
Modiano observes closely the past and tries to understand why life unsettles people, what is the reason for people‟s troubles, does not matter if these troubles are his or others. He is worrying over the wish to find a response to the questions he is interested in. He is ridden by finding the roots, relations, friendly connections by restoration of the broken links – the past and present, generations, search of a common dominant, uniting different people.
