La poésie après la guerre : généalogie de l'école Arechi dans la poésie japonaise de l'après-guerre

Abstract : This dissertation focuses on the dynamics that preside the emergence of Japanese Post-War poetry in which Arechi group school exercised a major role. Propelled by the event of the defeat, the Arechi poetry is closely related to the "experience of the war," over the historical period of the conflict that lasted fifteen years (1931 - 1945). An archaeological approach has been adopted in order to account the genesis of Arechi poetry. Firstly, the group’s poetic lines are outlined by presenting the issues of Japanese Modernism and its excessive formalism against which the Arechi poets reacted in order to bring poetry back to life and to instil flesh and blood into the poetic language. Secondly, the developments that affected not only Modernism, but also most part of Modern poetry in the late Thirties are explored, period in which poets were more or less voluntarily compelled to convert to the ideology of the nationalist war. The analysis of the modalities of these conversions has permitted to shed new light to the reasons that led the Arechi poets to confront the concern of the responsibility of the war at the aftermath of the defeat. Therefore, this study attempts not only to identify and depict Arechi poetry’s characteristics in the history of Modern Japanese poetry but also, to situate this form of poetry within the turmoil which inhabit all forms of Contemporary poetry after World War II, the experience of disaster and de-figuration of the poetic language.
