Tradition et modernité de l'aphorisme : Cioran, Reverdy, Scutenaire, Jourdan, Chazal

0.00 CHF tax incl.

The aphoristic writing of this century constitutes an extension of a ceremonial, gnomic tradition going back to the noblest period of antiquity. Therefore, the first part of this work is consecrated to the history of ceremonial genres and discontinuous writing and, in particular, to the appearance of the classical maxim. It is in direct descent from the maxim, in its shift towards the contingent and the subjective, that one can locate the emergence of the modern genre of aphorism, where the question of truth in the discontinuous discourse, notably through the surrealist revolution, takes a radically problematic turn. In the second part of the book, the hypothesis of a relative specificity of the modern aphorism such as the re-evaluation of the tradition is put to the test within the monographic studies consecrated to five authors of the foremost importance within the genre: Cioran, Reverdy, Scutenaire, Jourdan et Chazal.
