La Postérité de Robinson Crusoé : un mythe littéraire de la modernité, 1954-1986

0.00 CHF

Brought to life in 1719, in the writing of Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe has since generated a significant posterity. This sole survivor of a shipwreck has become the origin of a veritable myth, to which the literature of the second half of the 20th century took hold to make its own. This is a modern myth par excellence that affirms the emergence of the theme of modernity. Robinson has become, since William Golding's "robinsonnades", a pretext to call into question the individual, to interrogate the general meaning, and to reflect upon the myth itself. It is however, a curious paradox; the critiques of Robinson's myth come back on themselves in the novels which aim to rewrite it. The central question becomes: from Golding to Coetzee to Tournier, is our era striving to declare the mourning period for modernity even in the place of its birth, even within the story through which it made itself known to the world?
