L’essai, forme introuvable de la world literature ?

Abstract : The purpose of this essay is to inquire into the role of the essay in the field of world literature, especially in Pascale Casanova and Franco Moretti’s works. The analysis will focus on the difficulties these works had in considering the essay as a theoretical matter and will try to explain the reasons of such difficulties. The example of Robert Louis Stevenson and Julio Cortázar’s essays will provide a possible solution : to combine the world literature’s sociological and generic approaches in the theorical notion of literary strategy.
