Download E-books L'Hésitation d'Hamlet et la Décision de Shakespeare PDF

By Yves Bonnefoy

Nous venons d’entendre à travers toute los angeles fin d’Hamlet un « trop tard » qui semble avoir sens pour toute lifestyles moderne.Et nous avons donc maintenant à nous demander si ce « trop tard » est bien le constat ultime de l’œuvre, ce foisonnement de significations dont le fond serait seulement cette statement du non-sens, désespérante. query inquiète, sur cette plus radicale des réflexions de Shakespeare, et qui fait comprendre, en tout cas, pourquoi Hamlet a si évidemment fasciné, et de plus en plus à mesure que le dehors des phénomènes de l. a. matière se fait davantage l’étouffement des espérances naïves. remark ne pas se regarder dans un miroir que l’on pressent véridique ?Shakespeare domine notre pensée parce que cette pensée s’alarme. Mais n’apporte-t‐il, et même dans Hamlet, que des provisions pour l’effroi ? Dans cette tragédie du vouloir être manqué, est-il vrai que les ambiguïtés de l. a. signification ne se totalisent que sans laisser de position à une espérance de sens ? Je ne le pense pas. Je crois pouvoir constater qu’ Hamlet, c’est en fin de compte bien davantage. J’aperçois une measurement de plus, sous-jacente à toutes les autres, dans cette méditation qui avant d’être le texte que nous avons fut une écriture en devenir et le reste.Y. B.Yves Bonnefoy est professeur honoraire au Collège de France. Il a notamment publié, dans « l. a. Librairie du XXIe siècle », L’Imaginaire métaphysique (2006), Notre besoin de Rimbaud (2009), L’Autre Langue à portée de voix (2013) et Le Siècle de Baudelaire (2014).
