La mise en mots de l’espace géographique dans les romans de voyage pour la jeunesse : approche géopoétique de l'oeuvre de Xavier-Laurent Petit

Abstract : Focusing on 14 of Xavier-Laurent Petit’ s novels, we explore the processes used to create the trip and to gain the reader's consideration. Space, as a fictional universe of the narrative, induces a geographical anchoring of the texts. This representation of otherworldliness is based on personal writing choices and is part of a relevant relationship between the world and the words. But space, being constitutive of the novel, establishes the location as a foundation for the narrative, as an essential element for literary creation. I’m interested to show that fiction books about travel intended for youths give the possibility to follow an identity’ s construction around a double didactic node: the here and the elsewhere. I propose to introduce the concept of Geopoetics, which enables us to comprehend and analyse the territorial, geographical and geo-ecological dimensions of a literary text – and finally the aesthetically encoded relationships between man and Earth. This concept anchors this research in a triple way: simultaneously scientific, philosophical and poetic. Skirting the boundaries of literature and geography, trip novels for youths have the power to question the world. Through language, they give a space, a landscape, and even sometimes a path to read.
