Item description for Le silence du texte Poetique de la Decadence (La Republique des Lettres) by J. de Palacio...

A study of the French decadent movement at the end of the nineteenth century, focusing on the writings of Mallarme. French text. la fin du XIXe siecle, avec la complicite de la typographie, de la ponctuation et de la grammaire, le texte apprend a dire de moins en moins jusqu'au silence absolu. extremes, le cuchotis mysterieux et bref seraient, a en croire les contemporains, le propre de l'ecrivain de decadence. Et Adolphe Rette de parler mechamment, a propos de Mallarme (1897), de "tortillements d'infusoires sous un microscope infidele". Mais le projet mallarmeen n'est que l'aspect le plus visible d'une demarche plus generale, qui privilegie le blanc au detriment du noir, le point ou le tiret au detriment de la lettre, prefere le condense, l'infiniment petit, conte "sec" ou "microscopique", aphorisme, monosyllabe. La hantise de la page blanche se fait partout de plus en plus pressante, jusqu'a une sorte de desespoir ou la vanite du Verbe ne saurait guere trouver d'echo que dans l''Ecclesiaste' (Peeters 2003)
