Abstract: The critical acceptance, not to say canonization, of contemporary metafiction-postmodernist, neobaroque, or whatever it is eventually to be named-has led to a rethinking of many of the traditional assumptions about the novel as a mimetic genre. In other words, the actual forms of the fictions themselves have brought about a challenging of the theories that purport to explain them. The fact that a text can refer to itself as a text, as language, is not particularly new, but perhaps what is new, as suggested earlier, is the textual level at which it can do so.
