La réception française et espagnole de la tétralogie havanaise de Leonardo Padura Fuentes

Abstract : Today, the theory of reception is no longer only three elements: the author, the reader and the text, but multiple parameters that distort reception. We will demonstrate that Leonardo Padura is the representative of this new reception of the 21st century. A reception related to a sharing of data, opinions and overexposure of the writer, one of Cuba’s most well-known author. This sacralization of Leonardo Padura is due to the desire to shape him as the ultimate Cuban: an honest writer, hardworking and denouncer of the regime as are all writers of detective novels. This rapid and early vitrification of the novels has influenced the reception of the later works of Padura and still contaminates the readers of the tetralogy.It is by relying on Leonardo Padura Fuentes' Four Seasons cycle, composed of four volumes: Pasado Perfecto, Vientos de cuaresma, Máscaras and Paisaje de otoño, that we will be able to expand on. These four volumes form a whole, they describe the four seasons of a year, the year 1989. We chose this corpus because it was supposed to be a homogeneous whole, a logical continuation between the novels. Our intention is to prove that the reception of Leonardo Padura's tetralogy has been distorted since its publication more than twenty-five years ago, first of all because of the publication of the works in the disorder and then by the articles written by journalists, academics and ordinary readers.The individual example of Padura is a new form of reception and represents this new generation of authors. We will see that it will certainly have an impact on the history of litterature.
