Les Lauriers sont coupés (1888) is a novel by French writer Édouard Dujardin. The novel pioneered of the literary technique of stream of consciousness. A translation by New Directions translates the title as We'll to the Woods No More.

The novel can be perceived as a precursor of the 'stream of consciousness' writing-style, because of his renunciation of chronology in favor of free association. In the words of Dujardin: "la nouveauté essentielle qu'a apportée le monologue intérieur consiste en ce qu'il a pour objet d'évoquer le flux ininterrompu des pensées qui traversent l'âme du personnage ..."

Thereby anticipating the stream of consciousness narratives of Joyce and of Virginia Woolf.
