  • Download E-books Alfred Jarry: L’expérimentation Du Singulier PDF

    D'Alfred Jarry, on ne retient souvent de nos jours que le scandaleux Ubu Roi. Cela revient cependant à passer sous silence l. a. singulière expérimentation, placée sous le signe de l'enfance, dans laquelle l'existence de l'écrivain s'est peu à peu abimée. Au creux de sa voix lézardée se devine un désir éperdu de mettre en mots les forces de déflagration propres à los angeles vie, qui corrompent inéluctablement notre judgment of right and wrong individuée et que nos nobles philosophies s'efforcent en useless de compenser. Si l'œuvre de Jarry est réputée ardue, c'est peut-être parce qu'elle tente, livre après livre, de verbaliser un phénomène de dépossession de soi sous l'emprise duquel los angeles langue est contrainte de se désarticuler. Cette altération originelle de los angeles psyché, difficilement communicable sur le marché des idées, résiste en effet à nos traditionnelles catégories de pensée. Expérimenter le singulier, pour le poète, équivaut dès lors à braver doublement le bon sens et le poids accablant des événements, quitte à abolir les differences courantes entre l. a. technological know-how et l. a. fiction, l. a. littérature et los angeles vie, ou encore le fantasme et los angeles réalité. Karl Pollin enseigne los angeles littérature française et comparée à l'Université de Tulsa, Oklahoma (USA). Auteur d'articles consacrés entre autres à Antonin Artaud, Jean-François Lyotard, Jean-Jacques Schuhl et Maurice G. Dantec, il prépare actuellement un livre consacré au cinéma d'Andrzej Zulawski.
