Abstract [fr]

Au cours de l'automne 1897, Strindberg est accusé publiquement en Suède d’avoir plagié Huysmans. Cet article essaie d’éclaircir les tenants et les aboutissants de cette affaire en étudiant les sources biographiques et les idées religieuses présentes dans les romans Inferno (1897), Légendes (1898) et En route (1895). Moyennant une approche intertextuelle, nous dégagerons divers points de convergence au sein de leur imaginaire religieux, notamment la compassion divine et la souffrance rédemptrice.

Abstract [en]

In the fall of 1897, in Sweden, Strindberg was publicly accused of having plagiarized Huysmans. This article strives to investigate the case by studying the biographical sources and the religious ideas expressed in the novels Inferno (1897), Legends (1898) and En Route (1895), and by recontextualizing both writers’ works in the fin de siècle mysticism period. Thanks to an intertextual approach, we examine different points where Strindberg and Huysmans meet, as far as their religious imaginary is concerned, namely, the notions of divine compassion and redemptive suffering.
