Pierre Mac Orlan is the witness of an age of crisis and of the emergence of a new sensibility. His writing is characterized by a formal and thematic ambiguity which has generated mistrust for his novels. The "social fantastique" that creates the unusual through objects and elements of modern cities offers an innovative approach to reality and a new poetics of the imaginary. Thus, through Ricoeur's theory on the imaginary, we will try to show that the ambiguity of Mac Orlan hides a new approach to the relationship between reality and imagination, between history and literature.
