Abstract:

This article presents the Oulipo or Ouvroir de Littérature Potentielle [Workshop of Potential Literature], its founders, concerns, rules and members. It situates Oulipo in relation both to other literary groups which preceded it, notably the Surrealists, and to the mathematical collective Bourbaki, and gives examples of oulipian work done using mathematical structures.
