Ce livre retrace les conflits de la théorie de la littérature et du sens commun. La théorie refuse les préjugés du sens commun: la littérature comme essence; l'auteur comme autorité donnant sens au texte; le monde comme sujet de l'oeuvre; la lecture comme conversation entre un auteur et son lecteur; le style comme choix d'une manière d'écrire; l'histoire littéraire comme p ...more

I think that one of the reasons why I really don't like this book is because it was my obligatory reading for introduction into French literary criticism course. Getting a book like this while you're still just an ignorant freshman is really, really awful. Yes, I know that this book is actually great and Compagnon did a great job covering main points of literary criticism - it took about four or five other books to explain that to me and I definitely do not like that.

Remarkably fair-minded, and terribly urbane, presentation of the issues, Compagnon is still not able to offer much in the way of ways out--but what am I blathering on about: I only read the first half.

Pas terrible comme livre traitant sur la critique littéraire, en revanche, intéressant pour tous les termes liés à la littérature.

C'était le bon temps où avec Guyaux et Compagnon, on flânait au musée Furstemberg pour lire Baudelaire critique d'art...
