La littérature de jeunesse française suggest aujourd’hui un répertoire de formes créatrices nouvelles, de véritables expériences de los angeles parole.

Prenant sense of right and wrong de ses pouvoirs propres, des interactions fécondes entre texte et snapshot, empruntant aux avancées du récit tout au lengthy du XXe siècle, elle peut être envisagée comme un laboratoire où los angeles parole, dans tous ses états, se met à l’épreuve. Jeux polyphoniques des romans et des albums pour enfants, politique éditoriale d’une maison aussi creative que Le Rouergue, poétique d’une œuvre singulière comme celle de Philippe Corentin : l’analyse se déploie donc entre des expériences formelles qui visent plus profondément à interroger et à problématiser le statut de los angeles parole. Entre création (pour les auteurs étudiés ici) et réception (pour les jeunes lecteurs comme pour les médiateurs), c’est aussi une réflexion sur les vertus de l’affabulation à laquelle ce livre voudrait inviter. Il accompagne ainsi l’interrogation que tout sujet porte sur le langage, le ramenant à cet état d’enfance qui est sans doute l’ambition de toute vraie littérature.
