Une géognosie fantastique : lecture du sonnet À Made Sand

Abstract : With a reading of the sonnet “À Made Sand” as its point of departure, this article sheds light on Les Chimères in a threefold way: epistemologically, showing how Nerval borrows from the forgotten knowledge of the Baroque Renaissance reactivated by romanticism; phenomenologically, showing how his poems outline the contours of an imaginary geognosic landscape; lastly, by showing how they are “grotesque” and “sublime,” carried by an elementary reverie that implies a cosmogony.
