Joris-Karl Huysmans au miroir de sa littérature : évolution naturelle ou révolution?
Joris-Karl Huysmans in the mirror of his literary creativity: natural evolution or revolution?
Languages of publication
This article focuses on the evolutionary character of the literary work of Joris‐Karl Huysmans which expresses itself in the mutual penetration of naturalism, symbolism and decadence. The abandonment of the moralizing epithet and its ipseity seems to be the most important proof of the permeation of these tendencies. Therefore the writer’s heroes are able to find the integrity of their identity only in this heterogeneity.
