Les influences hispano-orientales dans l’oeuvre poétique, graphique et dramatique de Victor Hugo (1820-1860)

Abstract : In this thesis, firstly we investigate the origins of the Moorish Spanish context by showing how XIXth century society is turned towards the Orient and how Art is permeated by this new world in particular due to the influences of orientalism and romanticism. We discuss Hugo’s oriental iconography through his personal memoirs, notes from his travel journals, taking into account his biography but also by studying figures and movements symbolic of Hugo’s orient as depicted in Moorish Spanish painting and literature. Secondly, we look into the Moorish Spanish world and its recurrent themes. We illustrate how Moorish Spanish culture influenced Hugo’s writings. Lastly, we delve into Hugo’s Spanish soul with all its phantasmagorical and esoteric elements. Every human passion can be found in this Moorish Spanish world which allows Hugo to reveal his true inner character.
