The Moving Mould, décompositions / recompositions poétiques dans l'oeuvre d'Algernon Charles Swinburne

Abstract : The poetical works of Algernon Charles Swinburne articulate the manyavatars of a decomposition that manifests itself both the matically and prosodically in the text. Corpses, lepers, drowned bodies abound in his poetic universe. Beyond the clichés and common places of decadent aesthetics, Swinburne interrogates the possibility of proliferating materiality, so intense and irresistible that it contaminates the poetic form itself. This dynamics starts a curious autopoietic style that heralds the limitless possibilties of a formal recomposition. This thesis examines the stakes of Swinburne’s poetics, in order to understand where it stands in the context of the circulation of ideas during the end of the nineteenth century. In order to do so, this work will explore the dense intertextuality that connects the poet to French literature, from François Villon to Stéphane Mallarmé, through Clément Marot and Charles Baudelaire. Swinburne, francophone and francophile, appears as a overlooked figure, central both in English and French literatures.
