Comparative study of Ellys et Thanatos of André Suarès, The Shadowy Waters and The Land of Heart's Desire of William Butler Yeats. "Le rêve ondule sur la mer. Qu?est-ce que tout cela ? La pensée d?un mort, qui médite la vie ?? Ou la vie qui s?adore elle-même, dans la langueur ? Ou? On m?appelle, de l?autre rive ." It is within the landscapes of Cornouaille that Suarès indulged in this meditation which ended up with him writing the hymn to Brittany, Le livre de l?Emeraude which led to the creation of the spirit which animates his drama Ellys et Thanatos. He found there, "le climat de [s]on amour", a love in which the most intensive joys are tinged with sadness. Facing the ocean, the soul loses the measure of its humanity in the contemplation of a superhuman beauty and gives itself to the vertigo of the infinite.
