Abstract [en]

Through a comparative reading of three novels of the late nineteenthcentury namely Le Disciple, A rebours et Un homme libre, the monastic hermitage has emerged asa common place in which the protagonists of the novels, in search for aspiritual space, let themselves be shaped and transformed by the materiality ofplaces. Through the consideration of the specifics of these closed and sacredsanctuaries, as well as the identity and the dream of the end of the centuryman, a new literature searching for anideal will appear openly.
