Pour fêter la poésie avec Alain Badiou : Claudel, Saint John Perse, ou l’intime comme épopée

Aix-en-Provence - Poésie - Saturday 20 November 2021 at 4 pm. - Free

Quant au théâtre de Claudel, il est de part en part épopée historique et cheminement de l’amour. C’est dans le tumulte du monde que Prouhèze et Rodrigue, se cherchent, se trouvent, se perdent, se subliment. Et l’on sait que l’amour jamais résilié du poète, source intime de tout Le soulier de satin, se déclare sur un bateau qui fait route vers les aventures impériales que risque la France en extrême orient.

Si l’un et l’autre, Claudel et Saint-John Perse, l’un à l’école de l’autre, contre la prose nue, et contre le vers étroit, ont préféré le long verset, la stance épique, c’était largement pour faire advenir cette mystérieuse communion entre la rencontre amoureuse et le destin du monde.

Et c’est de tout cela que provient le titre de l'intervention d'Alain Badiou.
