Natura in fabula : topiques romanesques de l'environnement by Isabelle Trivisani-Moreau( )

3 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in French and English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les études réunies dans Natura in fabula envisagent les questions de la nature et de l?environnement dans le roman sous l?angle de la topique en s?appuyant sur le repérage de configurations narratives récurrentes. La nature apparaît souvent comme un cadre avec ses scénographies et topographies, mais elle peut également s?incarner en une entité avec laquelle doit composer l?homme plus que le personnage. Que font les topoi de la nature, dans leur malléabilité, voire leur réversibilité, à l?écriture ? Comment les tournants historiques viennent-ils infléchir ces topoi et en faire émerger de nouveaux ? Quelles éco-logiques les rapports que l?homme entretient avec la nature dans les œuvres romanesques esquissent-ils ?
La représentation romanesque de la nature de 1660 à 1680 by Isabelle Trivisani-Moreau( )

1 edition published in 1996 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theorical questioning of certain practices of writing used in the novel around 1660, such as description, menaces the presence of nature. In actuality, the elements of nature remain fairly well represented; they not only play a role at the heart of the intrigue, but also fulfill ornamental and even symbolic functions. The influence of this questioning is particularly perceived in the modification of the literary codes. From the locus amoenus the authors retain only the notion of pleasure which is omnipresent in the representation of exterior space: this new image is best incarnated in the garden which is constructed upon the principle of a moderated idealization. In this renewed space, the novelists incorporate seemingly contradictory events. Nature is at once a sanctuary of intimacy, a place for reverie and love, and a forum for social life. The literary discourse mirrors the habits of the high society of the period. This satisfied the tastes of the readers of novels. It is not, however, the author's intention to simply create a simple backdrop, but to enrich the novel using this ambiguity in a strategy of verisimilitude
