Abstract

Michel de Certeau tried to describe a topology identifying and contextualising the genre of the mystic fable throughout history. He has delineated its contours over two centuries, the 16th and the 17th. This paper focuses on the continued presence of the mystical in modern and contemporary literature : a reading of Gérard de Nerval’s Aurélia as a fable of mysticism serves to explore this issue. It may constitute a first stage in a larger theorisation of the mystic fable in modern and contemporary prose.
Michel de Certeau a cherché à décrire une véritable topique visant à identifier et à contextualiser le genre de la fable mystique à travers l’histoire. Il en trace les contours pendant deux siècles, les xvie et xviie. On se demandera sous quelle forme la mystique est encore présente dans la littérature moderne et contemporaine : la lecture d’Aurélia de Gérard de Nerval en tant que fable mystique aura pour objectif de mettre à l’épreuve cette question. Cette démarche entend constituer une première étape vers une théorisation plus large de la fable mystique dans la prose moderne et contemporaine.
