Abstract

This study focuses on the significance of the presence of animals in literature today and in particular on the possibility of finding a little humanity through animality, on the possibility of teaching man his share of humanity. by prose. The essential link between humans and animals today seems to be threatened by a radical change in the relationship between the two, a change that threatens both the animal species, in terms of extinction, and humanity to his turn. How does the presence of the animal in the novel help to build an effective reflection on the condition of man? Three texts, Une partie de chasse by Agnès Desarthe, Tiens ferme ta couronne by Yannick Haenel and Traversée by Francis Tabouret seemed representative of certain modalities of contemporary writing in the restitution of the relationship between men and animals on the background of sense of hunting. Humanity told by the animal says that the essential is probably in the animal world, in its strangeness to the turpitude of man and the threat it represents for them - «l'homme est une sale bête autant qu'une bête sale» (A. Ferney, Le Royaume des vivants, p. 71). Beyond the ecopoetic side of the 2000s, the presence of the animal in literature wants to contribute to restore the unity of the living, that is to say the reintegration of the human world and the natural world through narrative empathy for animals and recognition of their place.

Cette étude porte sur la signification de la présence des animaux dans la littérature de nos jours et notamment sur la possibilité de retrouver un peu d’humanité à travers l’animalité, sur la possibilité d’apprendre à l’homme sa part d’humanité de par la prose. Le lien essentiel qui relie les hommes et les animaux semble aujourd’hui être menacé par un bouleversement radical du rapport entre les uns et les autres, bouleversement qui menacerait à la fois l’espèce animale, en termes de disparition, et l’humanité à son tour. Comment la présence de l’animal dans le roman permet-elle de construire une réflexion efficace sur la condition de l’homme ? Trois textes, Une partie de chasse de Agnès Desarthe, Tiens ferme ta couronne de Yannick Haenel et Traversée de Francis Tabouret nous ont semblés représentatifs de certaines modalités de l’écriture contemporaine dans la restitution de la relation entre les hommes et les animaux sur fond du sens de la chasse. L’humanité racontée par l’animal dit que l’essentiel se trouve probablement dans l’univers animal, dans son étrangeté aux turpitudes de l’homme et à la menace qu’il représente pour eux – « l’homme est une sale bête autant qu’une bête sale » (Alice Ferney, Le Royaume des vivants, p. 71). Au-delà du versant écopoétique des années 2000, la présence de l’animal en littérature veut contribuer à restaurer l’unité du vivant, c’est-à-dire la réintégration du monde humain et du monde naturel à travers l’empathie narrative pour les animaux et la reconnaissance de leur place.
