Abstract: The first part of this Master’s thesis is a collection of poems titled “L’empreinte du large”. The approach I used was based on the poet’s capacity to take the language and, in the same movement, to be taken by it. In my poetry, the intimate coexists with the universal; everyday life questions the infinity; and the common faces the sacred. Theses themes were inspired by the great American poet, Emily Dickinson. The second part of the Master’s thesis is devoted to an essay titled “Saisie par l’insaisissable: le thème de la verticalité dans la poésie d’Emily Dickinson”. In this essay, I explore the theme of verticality as symbolized and thematized respectively by the mountain, the bird, and the tree. The objective was to find the signs of Emily Dickinson’s capacity to be astonished. The theory of thematic criticism, as applied by the literary critic Jean-Pierre Richard, provides a conceptual framework and a methodology for the essay.
