Abstract (English)

To accompany James' photographs of French gardens of the second half of the 18th century, Mosser's essay embraces notions of the poetic, pastoral and romantic, rapture, ectasy and panic. The author uses both a myriad of references to period literature and art and notions of "the sublime allegorical idea", imaginary landscape and the readable labyrinth to draw the gardens, the photographs and her text into the same domain. 10 bibl. ref.
