Interroger la pertinence de la notion de « littérature panoramique », appliquée par Walter Benjamin à un ensemble composite d’études de moeurs du XIXe siècle, à partir de corpus français, belge, anglais, belge, allemand, espagnol, autrichien : tel est l’enjeu de ce numéro. Si ce modèle heuristique, emprunté au spectacle du panorama, semble bien rendre compte de la « pulsion scopique », liée à l’avènement de l’état social démocratique, qui sous-tend ces textes et se manifeste par des effets de spécularité et de réflexivité ; si, par sa vocation unifiante, elle met en lumière la dialectique du même et de l’autre, de l’universel et de l’individuel héritée des Lumières, qui les caractérise, elle peut aussi relever de l’illusion d’optique. On se livre donc ici à une critique de la raison panoramique, à une critique aussi de la raison critique en scrutant le moment où, dans chaque pays concerné, la « littérature panoramique » se constitue en objet d’étude et en question. Ce numéro se veut tout à la fois l’antichambre et le tremplin d’un site d’étude interdisciplinaire en préparation, « Sociorama », consacré à la littérature panoramique internationale. [less ▲]

Examining the pertinence of the notion “panoramic literature”, famously used by Walter Benjamin in a series of studies on nineteenth century manners, on the basis on a French, Belgian, English, German, Spanish and Austrian corpus: that is what is at stake in this issue. Benjamin’s heuristic model, drawn from the spectacle of the panorama, seems to capture the ‘scopic pulsion’ which is connected to the advent of the social democratic state and which, underlying these texts, manifests itself in effects of specularity and reflexivity. By its unifying vocation, the model also brings to light another dimension of these texts, namely a characteristic dialectic of similarity and difference, of individuality and universality, inherited from the Enlightenment and arguably also indebted to the optical illusion. In returning to this notion, the present issue engages in a critique of panoramic reason, which is also a critique of critical reason in its analysis of the moment when, in each of the countries under consideration, a ‘panoramic literature’ constitutes itself as an object of study and a literary-historical question. The issue hence forms both the antechamber of and the springboard for an upcoming site, “Sociorama”, which will be devoted to interdisciplinary research on international “panoramic” literature.

Turning truth into vision, Gomorra lays the foundations for a new way to narrate reality, a way which is only in part inspired by the poetics of the nonfiction novel. Journalistic inquiry becomes literature by focusing on the power of the word and on the “self” of the author, an eyewitness in search of an element of attraction in order to give strength to the story and to ratify a truth that, otherwise, would be lost in the monotony of crime news. This method confirms Agamben’s idea, according to which the ethical result of testimony does not lie in the conformity between words and events, but in the guarantee that those words and those events will not be forgotten. Gomorra outlines a documentary aesthetics which, thanks to the expositive method of the novelist, turns statistics, objective data, personal experiences of everyday life into a story that combines literature, anthropology and sociology. In this way, Saviano’s self is closely related to the character around whom Marc Augé builds his ethnofiction: a witness and, at best, a symbol. [less ▲]
