Abstract

Based on a theoretical framework owing to Bourdieu, Viala and Meizoz successive adjustments of the notion of literary posturing, and on Maingueneau's concept of auctorial scenography, this chapter probes the writer's ethos of Irish crime fiction author Ken Bruen and its impact on his reception in the French literary field. It studies in particular the double transgression characteristic of his ethos as a pioneer of the Irish noir : a cultural transgression attacking relentlessly the international currency of myths and stereotypes of Ireland, and a generic transgression, which thrives in the tension between codes and constraints of the noir novel.
