Abstract

Sport and literature share a desire to sublimate, the pleasure of a moment, and the inner struggle to overcome against excessive hype and the misleading, ephemeral charm of flashes. This article focuses on three texts that "tell" the sporting body as a space of expression and frontier. It analyzes the way in which present-day writers pick up the physical life of the sporting effort, reflecting on its meaning and its future, to convey to the reader the emotions contained in the texts. Sport is a physical adventure which cultivates the body through exercises that lead the individual to a struggle with himself, with the other and with nature, in the framework of specific rules. Current French literature exploits sport, employing the notions of movement, stress, rhythm that the sporting life suggests. How does the narration of the "sport" become literary material, that is to say a matter of art?
