By René Girard

Mais, loin d'appliquer à Shakespeare les principes du mimétisme, il s'attache à montrer que Shakespeare était un "miméticien" avant los angeles lettre et que toute los angeles théorie mimétique était contenue, dès les premières pièces, dans son oeuvre théâtrale. Au-delà de Shakespeare, René Girard nous interroge sur nous-mêmes, sur los angeles size tragique de nos désirs, et nous suggest un tableau à los angeles fois sombre et plein d'espérance de l'humanité de toujours et de l'humanité d'aujourd'hui. Par ailleurs, il fait oeuvre de polémiste et s'attaque à los angeles critique littéraire contemporaine ; mais son livre est moins un retour à l. a. culture que l'apparition d'un classicisme critique "nouvelle manière" face à un modernisme exténué."
