Mouvements d’une écriture : la poésie « bilangue » de Presque-Songes et Traduit de la nuit, de Jean-Joseph Rabearivelo
Claire Riffard

This study tries to understand the movement of creation inside two poetic collections of the Malagasy poet Jean-Joseph Rabearivelo, Presque-Songes and Traduit de la nuit, which each one were composed in two languages: French and Malagasy. Initially, the analysis convenes the context of the writing, for better understanding of the inscritpion of the poet in or against the poetic practices of its times and its complex attitude vis-a-vis with its two languages of wtiting. Then, in a second part, are analysed the genetic documents (manuscript of the two collections, tapuscrit of Presque-Songes, original editions) wich make it possible to track the movement of design of this original poetry, entirely written in two languages, in the conjunction of two languages. Lastly, the analysis proposes an oultine of poetic of this completely specific bilingual writing, which one will temporarily call « bilangue », and which is caracterized by its dynamics of relations between two languages and two universes.
