Le thème de la possession du monde, de la femme, dans le théâtre de Claudel : Tête d'Or, La Ville, Partage de Midi, Le Soulier de Satin

Abstract : The subject of the research is " The theme of possession of the world, of the woman, in Claudel's theatre (Tête d'Or, La Ville, Partage de Midi, Le Soulier de Satin). What is the origin, from a christian point of view, of possession for the author himself ? We have found a relationship that exists between the personal evolution of Claudel during his lifetime and the way in which ate expressed the two components of the theme of the possession in his theatre plays : the possession of the world and the possession of the woman. In Claudel's drama, man tries to acquire without limits those things that are visible (material things, land, and the woman) but only in order to obtain finally those things that are invisible (the joy, the love and the Spirit, who are eternal). This analysis is focalized on the human desire itself, with it's double contradictory tendency of possession and of destruction ; One can see this double human desire confronted with a single metaphysical and spriritual aporia, the woman becoming, by favor of depossession, the illuminated mediator of a celestial to know himself and to express himself by using the great harmony of the world, a world shown as a profound source or privileged object of search and possession. Claudel's drama is characterized by a duality of possession and of depossession, which finds it's conclusion or resolution in the discovery of transcendence. Your possession is mine : he who's spirit was visited by certitude =, a certain 25th of December 1886 in Notre-Dame of Paris, understood one for all – even by repeating this question in his drama – where ins the principle of the only possession which can't be destroyed by anything.
