Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The emergence of digital in the cultural field is now an unavoidable proof, so that many research groups have now taken into account in their epistemological approach. However, the mere presence of an item or recurrence in a corpus is not sufficient to draw conclusions about the semantics of the literary text, since this is its own context and the stylistic dimension plays. a determining role in the creation of meaning. Digital technology obviously offers a lot of advantages, but the questions we ask must become more and more specific and precise. It is for this reason that we would like to develop a new epistemological approach, combining the analytical depth of literary exegesis with the latest advances in multimedia. Once the literary corpus has been established from methodological and scientific reasons (Ch. Baudelaire, Fleurs du Mal and Small poems in prose) and the macro-theme directing and justifying the analysis (the sensoriality), the method will be as follows: will first select the significant elements in the text and we will establish the analytical parameters and the hypertextual references, which will then be elaborated by a semantic and exploratory research software, based on the "graph analytics", able to elaborate the data received from a no longer static, but dynamic and relational. The aim is to demonstrate how the Baudelairian language is "hypertextual" in the linguistic sense, but also computer science of the word: it is to explore in an innovative and stimulating way the "correspondences" of the Baudelairian writing, in proposing the cooperation of the literary critic and the computer developer.
