Abstract

Among the writers belonging to the 'Manière Symboliste', for whom Claudel sometimes expresses a certain contempt, due to their lack of originality, the great maitres of French Symbolism - Baudelaire, Verlaine, Rimbaud and Mallarmé - represent in Claudel's opinion some admirable figures, not only from the poetic point of view, but also from the humain one. They were able in fact to oppose to the Positivistic culture of their time, a new vision of reality, animated by the nostalgia for a different dimension, preparing the way to a new sensibility. Nevertheless, the heritage of these authors drives inevitably to a 'cul-de-sac', which the XXth century feels the urgency of overcoming.

Hormis les auteurs de la manière symboliste, envers qui Claudel exprime parfois un certain mépris en raison de leur manque de vigueur et d'orginalité, les grands maitres du Symbolisme français - Baudelaire, Verlaine, Rimbaud et Mallarmé -, représentent pour Claudel des figures admirables, tant sous le profil poétique, que sous le profil humain, puisque à un panorama culturel caractérisé par le positivisme le plus radical, ils ont su opposer une vision de la réalité, animée par la nostalgie d'une dimension 'autre', préparant ainsi la voie à une sensibilité nouvelle. Néanmoins, l'héritage de ces auteurs conduit fatalement, aux yeux de Paul Claudel, à un cul-de-sac, que le XXème siècle a d'ailleurs senti l'urgence de dépasser.
