Le Moine

By Matthew Lewis

Chef-d'oeuvre du roman gothique anglais, Le Moine (1796) met en scène l. a. déchéance d'un capucin suprêmement vertueux, pris dans les rets d'une tentatrice diabolique. Péchés de los angeles chair, magie noire, visions infernales, transgression, damnation : rédigé par un jeune homme de vingt ans à peine, ce récit sulfureux, où le fantastique se mêle à l'horreur et où le désir règne en maître, créa le scandale avant d'être érigé en objet de culte par des générations d'écrivains. On ne compte plus les romantiques qui, comme Hoffmann, Coleridge et Victor Hugo, s'en inspirèrent ; Charles Dickens alla jusqu'à acheter le manuscrit aux enchères ; André Breton en healthy un modèle pour le surréalisme ; et Antonin Artaud, qui en proposa une réécriture libre, salua l'envoûtante "sorcellerie verbale" de Lewis : "Je continuerai à tenir pour une oeuvre essentielle Le Moine, qui bouscule cette réalité à pleins bras, qui traîne devant moi des sorciers, des apparitions et des larves, avec le naturel le plus parfait, et qui fait enfin du surnaturel une réalité comme les autres."
