Example text

Proust and the Carlylean Mediation of Dante 31 La grande âme de Dante, sans foyer sur terre, fit son foyer de plus en plus dans ce redoutable autre monde. Naturellement ses pensées couvaient cela, comme le seul fait important pour lui. Incarné ou non incarné, c’est le seul fait important pour tous les hommes: mais pour Dante, dans cet âge, il était incarné dans une fixe certitude de forme scientifique. […] Le cœur de Dante, longtemps rempli de ceci, le couvant dans sa pensée et sa terreur sans paroles, éclate à la fin en un ‘mystique et insondable chant’; et cette Divine Comédie, le plus remarquable de tous les Livres modernes, est le résultat.

Il est un facteur essentiel dans la motivation du fragment imitatif, mais fécond aussi d’autres noyaux; c’est ce qui renforce sa valeur de déclenchement, d’impulsion à un pastiche. Il peut en outre être mis en série et rencontrer alors le procédé typiquement balzacien de l’énumération. On en trouve un exemple dans Sodome et Gomorrhe, dans un passage où le Narrateur peint la piété du baron de Charlus, autre personnage de Proust autour duquel nous allons voir se développer une fois encore un pastiche intégré à la Recherche du temps perdu.

In his biography of Marcel Proust, Jean-Yves Tadié identifies the absolute importance of Carlyle: ‘Il n’est pas jusqu’au mot “adoration”, annonçant “l’adoration perpétuelle” Proust and the Carlylean Mediation of Dante 19 nor indeed of Carlyle, on Proust has as yet been the object of a major critical work, I shall limit myself to a commanding passage in ‘Le Héros comme poète’ in which Carlyle encapsulates the essence of Purgatorio. In fact, this pithy paragraph has a double impact on the reader of Les Héros, since Izoulet also cites it in full in his famous introduction, ‘Le Crépuscule des Dieux’.
