Download E-books L'Homme précaire et la Littérature PDF

By André Malraux

L'Homme précaire est à los angeles littérature ce que los angeles Métamorphose des dieux est aux beaux-arts.

Malraux suggest d'appliquer à los angeles littérature l. a. périodisation de l'histoire de l'art qu'il avait dégagée pour renouveler notre expérience des œuvres : une première période de figuration d'un surnaturel invisible, objet de prière et de dévotion ; une deuxième, à partir de los angeles Renaissance, au cours de laquelle l'art visait à représenter le monde réel, pour s'approcher toujours plus de l'illusion ; mais plus cette phantasm était poussée, plus elle occultait l'acte créateur, qui, dans un troisième temps et grâce à los angeles rupture initiée par Manet, devint désormais l'essentiel.

Appliquée à los angeles littérature, cette tripartition en bouleverse notre belief. l. a. fiction est l. a. proposal pivot qui permet de distinguer respectivement les trois moments. Elle est, pour chacun d'entre nous, une expérience majeure : parce qu'elle nous fait vivre par procuration une vie, c'est-à-dire un temps autre que le nôtre, elle porte plus loin qu'un basic divertissement.
