Abstract

In the seven sonnets that form the section Mysticisme included in the volume Petits Châteaux de Bohême (1852), Gérard de Nerval possibly deals for the first time with a spiritual theme in an organic and structured way. It is a poetic project that anticipates the depth of the Chimères, as well as the fascination of the Filles du feu and Aurélia. The analysis of this sonnet sequence allows us to address the foundational themes and spiritual inspirations informing Nerval’s subsequent works. Through a ‘geometric conjecture’ based on three symbols – the cross, the circle, and the triangle – this article aims at providing a personal interpretation of Mysticisme.
