L'influence de l'histoire contemporaine dans l' uvre de Marguerite Yourcenar propose de montrer que, loin d'etre seulement un ecrivain classique qui s'interesse a l'histoire du passe, Marguerite Yourcenar ne cesse d'evoquer l'histoire contemporaine et en subit nettement l'influence. La confrontation avec les historiens revele que Le Labyrinthe du monde reflete avec fidelite les evenements politiques, les realites sociales et les mentalites du XIXeme et du debut du XXeme siecles. Dans la representation des siecles passes se profilent tres frequemment les preoccupations que vivent les contemporains de l'ecrivain. L'interet de cet essai reside dans la mise en evidence de la repercussion des connaissances scientifiques sur la pensee de Marguerite Yourcenar. Sensible aux apports de la modernite tant dans ses idees que dans sa creation litteraire mais profondement impregnee de culture classique et convaincue de l'universalite de l'humanite, elle definit pour aujourd'hui un humanisme qui realise la synthese entre les valeurs de l'Antiquite, de l'Orient et celles de l'Occident moderne.
