Jacques Réda et la délivrance du passage : genèse du marcheur lyrique dans Amen, Récitatif et La Tourne

Abstract : What about lyricism today ? Is it of any avail to those who stand at the battered outposts of modernism ? In the wake of last century's experimentation, brought to a standstill on three occasions, J. Réda takes the matter up, starts afresh and updates it. In the course of his adventurous perigrinations through language, he challenges lyrical stalemate and fully commits himself to the process of breaking through and going beyond. Made into a trilogy, Amen, Récitatif, La Tourne, put, in turn, naming, voice and writing to the test of facts. Can reality be closed in on ? Does the visible, on its dark side, keep some other sight in store ? Dependent on perception, its call can only be heard through what it recalls. Do poetic perception and mere eye vision overlap to shape it ? Writing and memory do interfere with creation, but to what extend and to what purpose ? The lyric subject exists through these questions and gradually builds up as the poem puts answers forward. He risks undergoing transformation and imperils his own self. The present study investigates this quest from its start and attempts to clarify its meaning as it goes along. It proposes a running commentary that matches the difficulties with the successes of the poet's work confronted with its own limitations and potentialities. Relationship to origins, utterer's posture, balance of desires, layout of the scene, all these provide food for his thinking. Torn between indefinite negation and forgetful assertion, poetry stands in the forefront and goes forward. This work aims at shedding light on the prereflexive field where its foundations lie. Language ontology exposes the driving forces of spirit in action. The poet focuses on the being's mobility while his voice is propped by the power of rythm which, all things considered, turns out to be the most obvious evidence of lyrical commitment throughout poetic works
