« Réinterprétations génériques et intermédiales d’une scène de meurtre : pourquoi et comment donner à voir la mort du vieil Hamlet ? »

Abstract : In a diachronical and intermedial perspective, when one considers the numerous rewritings of what may be called a ‘mytheme’ within the myth of Hamlet that is to say the founding murder of the father, each rewriting takes on a metatextual value and partakes of the critics and artists’s will to question Shakespeare’s choice of not directly staging the murder in favour of indirect representations which underline the enigma. This essay explores some cases of generic and intermedial migrations chosen amongst the range of formal propositions suggested by Shakespeare – a tragedy, a spectacular oral narrative, a pantomime recreating the silent film of events – then examined in the cultural transfers linked to geographical and / or chronological shiftings – some 19th century illustrations and three present-day works : Pierre Bayard’s essay entitled Enquête sur Hamlet. Le dialogue de sourds (2002), Nutshell Ian McEwan’s novel (2016) and Hamlet Michael Almeyreda’s film (2000).
