Potentialités de l’harmonie imitative
Un poème de Bosco
Bosco’s literary theory, dispersed throughout numerous self-critical admissions, reveals a concern for textual format, justified by Bosco as being the means of his spiritual quest, shared with the reader. A very short poem by Bosco, matured at length, shows great care in the poetic form, a form in which all aspects serve to translate in the text itself the object of the description: Bosco’s beloved mountain, turned into a poem. The study of its imitabal harmony, covering every level of the text, would be in vain if one were to neglect the spiritual aspirations of the poet, his attention to the secret of the Being, incarnated by the mountain. But we must hesitate in designating the nature of this secret: the truth of a mystical order; or, on the contrary, that of the violence lodged deep in every man, a violence which the mountain might resemble?
