Alain Robbe-Grillet’s La Jalousie: Realism and the Ethics of Reading Zahi Zalloua bio Published inas the nouveau roman was rising on the Parisian literary scene, Alain Robbe-Grillet’s novel La Jalousie [ Jealousy ] robbe-grilley in jaoousie of its first readers a reaction of puzzlement and consternation.
One critic from the newspaper Le Monde believed that “he had surely received a copy whose pages had been mixed up by the printer, that it was a jumbled mess” qtd.
La Jalousiein many ways, can be said to illustrate Robbe-Grillet’s modernist, if not postmodernist, bias against classical realism and narration, 1 his view that “tell[ing] a story has become strictly impossible [ raconter est devenu proprement impossible ]” Making these remarks in an article aptly entitled “On Several Obsolete Notions,” published the same year as La Jalousie and republished a few years later in his influential manifesto For a New NovelRobbe-Grillet made clear his intention to renovate both ribbe-grillet novel form and the critical reading practices used in approaching the genre as a whole.
Few readers answered Robbe-Grillet’s call for a radicalization of the novel, however, and the question of how one can or should read La Jalousie ‘s unruliness, its intentional challenge to hermeneutical containment and cognitive mastery, still remains open.

The question of how to respond to La Jalousie —a question that the novel itself allegorizes or stages in several key scenes—is not just an intellectual or epistemological challenge but also an ethical one. The following pages re-examine the reception [End Page 13] of Robbe-Grillet’s work from such a perspective, identifying the forms of readerly responsibility that the novel stages and elicits, as well as evaluating the very possibility of meeting the text’s ethical and interpretive demands in such a way.
Confronted with La Jalousie ‘s unruliness, some critics in effect ignored it, proceeding with well-established modes of inquiry in an attempt to impose a fixed meaning on the text. In his work The Novels of Robbe-GrilletBruce Morrissette offered the first systematic and explanatory study of the novel, basing his reading in part on the authority of its jacket blurb, which he faithfully paraphrased as follows:.
The story with its jaloousie characters—the husband, the wife, the presumed lover—is “narrated” by the husband, a tropical planter who, from the vantage points in his banana plantation house, surrounded on three sides by its wide veranda, suspiciously keeps watch over his wife. According to Morrissette, two chronologies control the novel’s action: The novel’s disconcerting chronological impasses can be explained as symptoms of the inner psychic unity governing the order of the novel’s events.
La Jalousie ‘s initial disturbing effects are thus eliminated through a critical re-reading, one which restores the comforting sense of comprehension and jalousoe.
Prioritizing referential interpretation does not necessarily lead to a psychological reading of La Jalousiehowever. In his Lecture politique du roman [ Political Reading of the Novel ], Jacques Leenhardt proposed a compelling sociological analysis of the novel, unsettling Morrissette’s influential contention that La Jalousie is about erotic jealousy and, more specifically, about the psychic reality of a jealous husband.
Leenhardt’s reading purports to make visible what in Frederic Jameson’s terms can be described as La Jalousie ‘s “material and referential preconditions “emphasis original. Privileging the jaloksie, in turn, enables the reader to escape the all-too-common psychologization of the husband in order to better attest to his ideological subject position. Leenhardt reads the novel [End Page 14] allegorically as a textual site of tension between two competing colonial models: Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars robbeg-rillet.
