LHT, no 5 : Poétiques de la philologie

Et si la philologie, loin d’être seulement cette science des textes et de la langue qui restitue le passé lointain des textes, était aussi le lieu où s’invente et se produit la littérature, où s’invente même son futur ; si elle n’était pas seulement cette discipline qui sert les oeuvres, mais bien un art du langage dont se servent les écrivains ?. Telle est la question discutée, d’Homère à Pessoa, ou de Pindare à Joyce, en passant par Virgile, Dacier, Lamartine, Tolkien et quelques autres, par les auteurs des articles réunis par Sophie Rabau, avec le soutien du groupe Hermès dirigé par Françoise Lavocat, pour le 5ème numéro de la Revue LHT « Poétiques de la philologie » qui se présente, pour l’occasion, sous les atours d’une nouvelle maquette.
