Description The text is based on the assumption that space is a reflection of time, which gave birth to him, just as literature is a reflection of the time in which it was born. If there are authors who are more attentive to the creation of the spatial dimension of the text, it is certainly François Bon, for which space is the current centerpiece of the fictional world. François Bon gives an insight into the factory and manual labor, and through a detailed description of the urban area with dehumanised buildings from a of iron, concrete and glass allows to evaluate the role (post-and / or ultra) modern architecture in the literature, which reports only restrained to the modern novel.
