Keywords: Dannemark | Postmodernity | Minimalism | Sea | Belgian

The sea and the beach play a very specific role in the minimalist scenes and fiction of the contemporary Belgian francophone writer Francis Dannemark. They represent both space undefinition and fantasmatic escape. Our critical approach will try to illustrate that in several Dannemark’s novels unanimously considered as “minimalist” and “postmodern” by criticism. The author tries to illustrate the narrative technique present in these novels as well as the specific and ambiguous vision of Belgium emerging from them through the theme of the sea.
