Du triangle au labyrinthe : Formes et figures de la quête dans l'oeuvre romanesque et autobiographique de Marguerite Yourcenar

Abstract : The work of Marguerite Yourcenar stands under the sign of the quest, which ideal model is the Grail. As it is developed, it follows the inner journey of both the author and its characters marching into life. The quest for selfhood in Alexis, The New Eurydice, Coup de grâce assumes the figure of a triangle and confronts the hero with two irreconcilable forms of love ; he finally accepts himself as the result of a kind of catharsis. A Coin in nine hands, Anna, soror, are the first landmarks of the quest's widening, as it is enriched by a new mythical dimension dominated by the figure of the circle. According to the labyrinth's structure, the Memoirs, stood at the crossroads between fiction and History, portray an impersonal quest in which the individual being institutes an universal relation with the world that allows him to get out of Time.
