L’œuvre poétique de Nadia Tuéni au regard de son pays natal : réflexions sur les liens entre paysage et identité

Abstract : Lebanon is a country in which togetherness seems to be necessary, as several cultures are continuously in interaction. Therefore, major social and identity issues are raised.Starting from the beginning of the 20th century, Lebanese writers raised their voices because they were revolted by the absurdity and the violence of the wars which continuously ravaged Lebanon and other Arab countries. These writers were hoping that their testimony would help reinstaure interculturalism on this territory which had been an emblem of religious and cultural consensus for a long time. French-speaking Lebanese poet Nadia Hamade Tueni had multiple identities herself. Thus, she was dedicated to maintaining religious and cultural pluralism in her country despite the wars which jeopardized it between 1967 and 1975. The description of landscapes plays an important role in her writing. She represented the Lebanese identity through Lebanese landscapes, which she described with a poetics of the sea, the mountain and the desert.Our research is divided into four parts. Firstly, we will analyze the historical and language context of Nadia Tueni’s poems and texts in prose. Secondly, we will be interested in identity-building factors and the complexity of the concept of identity, especially as far as the Lebanese identity is concerned. Thirdly, we will explain the declinations of Tueni’s landscapes and how they interact with the poet’s body, her identity and more generally the Lebanese identity. By doing so, we will eventually understand Nadia Tueni’s vision and conception of identity at the end of this work.
