  • Publication type: Article from a collective work

  • Abstract: There are two kinds of mystical novels of conversion at the beginning of the 20th century: the first stresses the horizontality of the mystical way and leads to an optimistic curiosity, for faith seems inexorable ; the second stresses the verticality of the mystical experience and leads to suspense, because of the precariousness of faith and the usual absence of God (we propose to call it, compared to negative theology, negative poetics).
