Mimésis et Politique dans Representative Men de R. W. Emerson

Abstract : Emerson’s Representative Men (1850) weaves together aesthetics and politics as it addresses the civic role of the poet. This article shows how Emerson repeats Plato’s inaugural determination of mimesis as imitation the better to expose the failure of its logic and offer an alternative form of mimesis whose effects shape the community to come.
