…votre pensée, s’enlaçant à la fiction. Ry/Bovary, une médiation littéraire grand public

Abstract : A place (a small village), a character (Emma B.), a device (a literary location). This ethnographic and semiotic study analyzes the way in which a storybook character with a (very) banal and tragic destiny has been promoted to the rank of a living fiction. This adaptation of a fictional character comes to life in the form of a scene involving miniature automats — La Galerie Bovary — and presents itself in the form of an itinerary in the real space of the Norman countryside — A Promenade in the Country of Emma Bovary. This well-intentioned tourist attraction does not make any attempt to evoke the text of Flaubert’s novel, preferring to play on and with the heroine of the grim romance. This study aims to demonstrate how forms of literary mediation can be seen as part of a long-term cultural history (oral folklore themes and belief in Christian legends) seen from the point of view of its contemporary values and forms.
