Le roman et les sortilèges : réemplois du conte merveilleux chez George Sand et Jules Barbey d'Aurevilly

Abstract : In spite of a similar influence of the tale and of notable similarities in their integration of the supernatural into the thread of the narratives, the novels of George Sand and Jules Barbey d’Aurevilly point at two opposite views of the world. The Sandian supernatural merges with nature and blends in harmoniously with the rustic setting of the novels, which are also directed by the optimistic logic of the tale itself. On the contrary, the pessimistic author of Diaboliques believes in the active presence of the Devil and its demons in people’s hearts, whose passions hand over to the Evil One; the communication of human and supernatural spheres is also the source of a fantastical climate: the entire action of L’Ensorcelée takes place at the frontier of these two worlds, whereas in La Petite Fadette the shadow cast by evil spells swiftly vanishes in the natural lights of the spirit and the human heart.
