Le paradigme astral existe-t-il chez JMG Le Clézio?

Abstract : Are the times when the male character looks up to the sky and contemplates the constellations (Le Chercheur d’or) or particularly the sun (Le Procès-verbal) a lead to genealogy, time or human condition reflexions? Is there a Paradigme astral, a dream of plasmaticité which ceases to split Le Clezio’s work in two antagonists places, (earth versus sky)? We test the hypothesis of an astral area which would rather be a breathe, an atmosphere living to the cosmic rythm than a place up and apart, to see, or to calculate. How can this Paradigm question our view, our way to live in ? What stake, besides the sun's centrality brought by Copernic? Various strategies set in motion what freezes the representation of the celestial world. The analysis of the connection to sky in Le chercheur d’or allows to understand how Alexis leaves his way of living in to become breath. The matter of L’Inconnu sur la terre, which, due to his poetic essai's form, simplifies a dream of levitation, rather mundane, classic, precisely is that plasmabilité which furthers the common dream to fly, just like Icare, mythological reference that Le Clézio stages while deconstructing it in the meantime.
