Synopsis

Cette etude examine la premiere etape de la carriere d'ecrivain de Marguerite Yourcenar. On y trouvera une relecture de trois oeuvres d'une importance primordiale: Alexis, Denier du Reve et Memoires d'Hadrien. Dans ces trois romans, a travers lesquels Yourcenar cherche sa voix d'auteur, la question d'identite est en jeu, qu'il s'agisse de l'identite du personnage ou du narrateur. Partant d'une representation de l'identite comme floue, multiple ou instable, Yourcenar en vient a affirmer la vision d'un moi unifie, universel et transcendant. Cette evolution eclaire l'oeuvre subsequente de Yourcenar; tenir compte, c'est mieux comprendre l'independance de cet ecrivain imbu de la culture de la Renaissance comme de l'Antiquite vis-a-vis des courants intellectuels de son epoque.
