« J'aurais écrit que mes yeux ont vu quelque chose qui, un instant, les a niés » : l'autre, la rupture, la présence. Hofmannsthal, Rilke et Jaccottet

Abstract : In times of uncertainty, during which the modern world – still following its course nowadays – stimulated the confusion between the social structures, economicals abstractions, concepts or systems of words which hold our pieces together, and the experience of reality itself, three poets risked their words through the strangeness that their century produced. Rilke, Hofmannsthal and Jaccottet exposed their poems and prose to the torments of facing the outside, the other – being or element of reality – given back to its mystery, to its « absence of answer » : whether it was a bird flying away into the woods, the single light of a moment illuminating an orchard, or a dying friend. However, the unveiled void between oneself and the other which can never be reached, seems to create the paradoxal possibility of a link with the outside world, of a presence at the world. In these poets'writings, the breach never knows any overcoming ; it is rather lived, repeatedely, within an unstable balance ; it is told through words whose deficiencies are both putting the poem in danger and making it fair, and whose hope of sharing can be built with the poetics of distance, fading, and farewell.
