The Paris Ramuz

Michel Arouimi


Ramuz presented his vision of literary art in diverse works, paying special attention to the diversity of the external world, whose mystery both a poet and a painter attempt to capture into a synthetic reflection, which is not just a mere copy of the reality. If Ramuz as a young poet, before he became a novelist, recognised his own poetic mission in Paris, then Paris itself, as later described in a short essay Paris (notes d’un Vaudois), appears to be the urban metaphor of his poetic ideal.
This phenomenon testifies to the auto-analytical value of works by Ramuz. In particular, the Paris evoked in the essay mentioned above reveals the metaphysical vision of the poet, fascinated with the principle of unity, reflected in his works as well as the external world.
