Lyrisme et cosmopolitisme dans l’œuvre poétique d’Andrée Chedid

Abstract : Through the thesis: "Lyricism and cosmopolitanism in Chedid’s poetical works", we propose to look at the opening(s) world(s) in the poetry of Chedid. This thesis develops the pathic experience and expression at the heart of the text and therefore emphasizes on the lyrical pole of the subject so as to highlight the cosmopolitan resonance of her effusions. Through a combination of the "lyricological", theme and phenomenological approaches, the study shows that the dimensions of the lyrical expression in the work of Andrée Chedid, do not limit themselves to the exclusive presentation of the subject’s emotional presence, but rather writes it down (with respect to its trajectory and experiences) in a permanent projection towards world (s). Therefore, the idea is to split up lyricism through the themes of memory and intimacy which root the poetical word in the movements of the authorial subject’s soul. Thus, thanks to the different enunciation postures and experiences of time, death and existence, on can note that the lyrical subject develops a strong empathy for the human condition. In this sense, his “decentration” paves the way to the harmonious coexistence with the alter ego and the inclusion of the otherness in the body appears as one of the foundations of the poetics of Chedid. Thus, her works, like most Francophones texts, declined a close relationship with the universe of reference. By crossing the landscape, the study reveals the realistic and utopic impact of the world projected by the poet; and the thesis concludes that Andrée Chedid, through literature, suggests ways of renewal in human potential, of new hope based on the praise of freedom, love, dream and life.
