Download L'Œuvre de l'art, tome 1 : Immanence et trancendance by Gérard Genette PDF

Dans le moment, cet objet (un texte littéraire, une composition musicale, le plan d’un édifice) est idéal, conçu par réduction à partir de ses manifestations physiques : livres, walls, exécutions. los angeles transcendance est définie par les diverses manières dont une œuvre déborde son immanence : lorsqu’elle consiste en plusieurs objets non identiques (œuvres à « models »), lorsqu’elle se manifeste de manière lacunaire (fragments) ou indirecte (copies, reproductions, descriptions) ou lorsqu’elle agit diversement selon les lieux, les époques, les individus, les circonstances : on ne regarde jamais deux fois le même tableau, on ne lit jamais deux fois le même livre. L’œuvre ne se réduit donc pas à son objet d’immanence, parce que son être est inséparable de son motion. L’œuvre d’art est toujours déjà l’œuvre de l’art.
