L’évolution de la figure héroïque au sein de la littérature alpine de la seconde moitié du vingtième siècle à nos jours

Abstract : June 1950, Maurice Herzog becomes the first man to climb Annapurna, a summit of over 8,000 meters. With the work drawn from this exploit "Annapurna premier 8000" the French people discovered a new kind of hero. The mountaineer. Crystallizing passions, the Alpine hero became the symbol of a patriotic and supremacist France in search of prestige after the debacle of World War II. Since that date, there has been a tradition in which the motif of the heroic posture plays a crucial role. Indeed, to take the condition of "literary hero" supposes the acceptance of several rules which vary according to the registers. In the case of alpine literature it is about understanding how these trials are based on true alpine climbs and facts of real mountains. And especially how the value of this varies according to the time and the readership until forming a concrete evolution in the embodiment of a literary posture.
