Ritualité de l’émerveillement

Abstract : In continuation of theoretical and methodological principles I’ve identified about poetics of wonder in literature, I am interested in the question of the ritual of wonder. As a first step, I show that literary wonder can actually be considered as a rite. In a second step, I study the literary specificity of this ritual – literature providing a path if not unique at least privilegied for the emergence of experience of wonder. To conclude, I briefly discuss the consequences of this type of ritual, able to confirm ability’s literature to positively transform the way we perceive the world.
