Tản Đà (1889-1939) – un lettré rêveur de l’Occident

Abstract : Born in 1889 and died in 1939 in Hanoi, Tản Đà (Nguyễn Khắc Hiếu) is a man of the colonial era. Excellent student, he nevertheless failed the competition in Chinese characters. In 1915, the year of the last competition in Tonkin, he leaves in a new adventure. His first prose in quốc ngữ published in Đông Dương tạp chí are immediately greeted by the public. He gives up the career in administration and confirms a radical and irreversible choice : the literature will be his career and the readers will be his judges. Famous poet, a true link between the ancient poems and modern, Tản Đà is also the author of a large number of journalistic texts and the novels. In the novel Giấc mộng con (The Little Dream, 1917), the West plays an important role. My purpose is to analyze his understanding of Western civilization and his future project for Vietnam.
