La Lettre dans le récit. Étude de l’œuvre de Mlle de Scudéry

Abstract : A traditional narrative ornament of the xvii century, the letter, is examined in this study in view of defining both its role as such an ornament and its evolution as well as its specificity and various functions within the narration. This study also aims at defining the influence of the socio-cultural context (wordliness) upon the epistolary writing in novels and the relation between letters as found in novels and novels made of letters. Although the study focuses mainly upon the works of Mademoiselle de Scudery, it also draws upon earlier or contemporary writings including l'Astree by Honore d'Urfe.
