La quête de l'absolu à travers Eve de Charles Péguy et Nim-ui Chim-mûk (votre Silence) de Han Yong-un

Abstract : This thesis in comparative literature, demonstrates a parallel between Nim-ûi Chim-Muk (Your Silence) a poem written by the Korean poet and Buddhist monk, Han-Yong-un (1879-1944), and the poem Eve, written by the French poet Charles Péguy (1873-1914). This study is grounded in a comparison between Korean culture as a synthesis of Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism, and French culture with its Judeo-Christian and Greek philosophical roots. The writings of both Han and Péguy as well as their committements were intended to promote a free co-creating humanity and the liberation of their peoples who were suffering in darkness. Han lived under Japanese occupation, Péguy felt the German menace very strongly. Péguy and Han call for resistance to be based in the absolute soul. Both feel the absence and the presence of eternity-in-time (the eternal now) deep in their souls - this absence and presence which can only express itself in silence, in multiple unity and in communion. Plotinus, Bergson, Meister Eckhart, the Zohar and the Tao-teh-king (Lao-Tzu) are discussed and presented as bridges between East and the West
