This article considers the importance of studying the process of rewriting for an examination of Alain Robbe-Grillet's anthology Pour un nouveau roman (1963). It studies two types of rewriting: the first involves the way reported speech is used and revised in the different versions of a text. The second concerns the reformulation of the writer's own discourse. The comparison of the original newspaper articles and their rewritten versions in the book that became the manifesto of an innovative literary movement draws upon studies from both ‘textual genetics’ (génétique textuelle) and discourse analysis.
