Influenced by metaphorology, the present study analyzes the connections and contrasts between the various lexicons and notions that, though different and at time almost incompatible, are brought together in Claudel’s Art Poétique, which draws from Thomas Aquinas and Mallarmé, Poe and Augustine. The debate regarding the imitation of the poiesis of nature and the autonomy of art, the tension between the stable identity of form and the fluctuating forces that at once constitute and transgress it, the relationship between formation and apocalypse, between morphologic and eschatological variation, the problem of the legibility or figuration of the aesthetic world, the dichotomy between knowing and seeing: these are the issues that reveal how Claudel’s theologic aesthetic is not an ideological philosophy of art or a specialistic reflection on poetic and rhetorical institutions.

Abstract

Influenced by metaphorology, the present study analyzes the connections and contrasts between the various lexicons and notions that, though different and at time almost incompatible, are brought together in Claudel’s Art Poétique, which draws from Thomas Aquinas and Mallarmé, Poe and Augustine. The debate regarding the imitation of the poiesis of nature and the autonomy of art, the tension between the stable identity of form and the fluctuating forces that at once constitute and transgress it, the relationship between formation and apocalypse, between morphologic and eschatological variation, the problem of the legibility or figuration of the aesthetic world, the dichotomy between knowing and seeing: these are the issues that reveal how Claudel’s theologic aesthetic is not an ideological philosophy of art or a specialistic reflection on poetic and rhetorical institutions.
