De la prison à la prison: Jean Genet et les espaces clos dans Notre-Dame-Des-Fleurs

Adjé Justin Aka

Abstract


Indifféremment du genre littéraire (théâtre, roman), tous les livres de Jean Genet investissent un espace principal quasiment identique, celui de la prison. C’est certainement l’un des auteurs français qui fait de l’apologie des lieux clos pratiquement un sacerdoce. Son histoire personnelle se mêle avec ses fictions qui sont présentées comme des témoignages. Le problème qui a suscité cette étude est celui d’un espace périphérique répréhensible. Nous avons voulu montrer dans cette étude que la prison fait partie de son environnement aussi bien physique que dans sa conscience, car elle alimente une écriture pénitentiaire.

Mots-clés: cellule, cachot, enfermement, cruauté, larcin, minoritaire

English Title: From prison to prison: Jean Genet and the enclosed spaces in our Lady of The Flowers

English Abstract

Indifferently from the literary genre (theatre, roman), all Jean Genet's books invest a nearly identical principal space, that of the prison. It is certainly one of the French authors who makes the apology of enclosed places practically a priesthood. His personal history is mingled with his fictions which are presented as testimonies. The problem that prompted this study is that of a reprehensible peripheral space. We aim at showing in this study that prison is part of his physical environment as well as in his consciousness because it feeds penitentiary writing.

Keywords: cell, dungeon, confinement, cruelty, larceny, minority
