La Parousie de la conscience dans l'oeuvre de Saint-John Perse : une lecture ontologique de l'oeuvre de Saint-John Perse

Abstract : Through the analysis of the emblems and themes developped by saint-john perse, the object of our study is to show the fundamental unity engendered by the dynamism of the thought that questions itself through the poetical word. Thus, the poet operates an ethopoiea that goes beyond any linguistic approach. This study reconstitutes the successive steps of saint-john perse's thought and shows how the language, both the object and subject of the poetic quest, is, as the poet'ss work unfolds, the revelation of the logos. So he sets forth the essential nature of poetry that composes the opus while decomposing the world in order to reveal its essence. Exhausting the language, using all the tropes through which man figures his apprehension of the world, saint-john perse intones, like a sacred hymn, the march of mankind - a book of pictures to which men identified themselves until they exhausted their meaningfulness. Having reached this awareness that the world of existence exists only through the logos, saint-john perse embraces the revelation that the poet sets forth the divine breath and articulates the divine word. He portends man's second genesis that defines his legitimate ontological status. Man is the masterbuilder without whom god could not reveal himself ; he is god's ultimate exponent
