  • Abstract: Bernanos experiences literature as the way to turn God’s absence into presence, despite the ontological flaws of words. This article aims to bring out the main elements of the poetics of mystic novel, as for : a rhetoric of oxymoron, the use of the narrative as a parable in which the bodies stand for the words, and, eventually, a “negative theology” that means to represent God vicariously, through its opposite.
