Abstract [fr]

Strindberg et Huysmans appartiennent à la même période mystique de fin de siècle et partagent le même rêve religieux, celui notamment de fonder une colonie d’artistes de style monastique. Alors que Huysmans réalise une partie de ses rêves en devenant oblat bénédictin et en essayant de regrouper autour de lui quelques artistes, Strindberg échouera. L’écrivain suédois ne verra jamais son rêve prendre forme tel qu’il l’aura défini avec minutie dans sa correspondance. En revanche, au lieu de devenir moine, il mettra son écriture à contribution pour faire vivre ce rêve à travers de nombreux personnages littéraires de son théâtre. Cette étude examine les deux manières différentes par lesquelles Huysmans et Strindberg ont vécu leurs rêves.

Abstract [en]

Strindberg and Huysmans belong to the same fin de siècle mysticism period and deal with the same religious dream, more specifically one concerning the setting up of a “monastically inspired artistic community”. Whereas Huysmans realized a part of this dream and became a Benedictine oblate while at the same time trying to found a “colony of artists” of his own and to some extent succeeded, Strindberg did not. The Swedish writer could never materialize his plan, several aspects of which were extensively described in his letters. Instead of becoming a monk, he used his own literary writing and incarnated his dream in a number of theatrical pieces. This study investigates the two different modes in which Huysmans and Strindberg respectively lived his own particular dream.
