Les implications poétiques et politiques des retraductions des œuvres de Gustave Flaubert en URSS

Abstract : The article deals with the various reasons and strategies which have governed the output of the new translations of Gustave Flaubert’s works in the USSR. So the question is first to re-build series of interpretations (series traductives) of the re-translations of Gustave Flaubert’s works, both into Russian and Ukrainian, that is to say, into the two major languages in which the French writer’s texts were published in this multi-national territory. To do so, a short account of the premisses of the reception of Flaubert’s writings in both cultures is sketched. Then the ways and means, both quality and quantity-wise, used by publishers and translators to introduce the œuvre of the author in the USSR, particularly through the new translations, are revealed. The translation of Flaubert’s heritage in the USSR met with evolutions and changes of direction which can be defined by describing three stages that follow and generate each other ; these are the intention phase, the naturalization phase and the consecration phase. Such an approach makes it possible to study, both diachronically and synchronically, the adjustment of the transferring of Gustave Flaubert’s works in a country where the soviet ideology was dominant. And finally the poetical and political implications of the new translations which took part in the reception of Gustave Flaubert, not only in the remote past, but mostly in the present times as well, are explained.
