Foisonnement et organisation : réflexions sur la structure du Roman de Tristan en prose

Abstract : The image of an unorganised text remains attached to the Prose Tristan Romance. The expansion of the material is the leading reason of this reputation. The Prose Tristan is an interlaced Arthurian romance, following the Prose Lancelot. Analysing the way this technique is used in the Tristan does not allow to say that the interlace in the Tristan would be unable to set up an organisation. A firm plan of the romance is drawn up, in which are involved all the narrative aspects of the adventures. The global architecture is animated by the evolution of Tristan, organised by the comparison with Lancelot, which is more than a simple leitmotiv and must be read as the rule of Tristan's progression. Some polemical ways of giving the romance a structure have been revealed, concerning peculiarly Lancelot and the Grail. Last, one must consider how the Tristan keeps a distance between itself and its literary sources — thus reinvesting the old subversive dimension attached to Tristan.
