"Gaufrey" : édition et étude littéraire

Abstract : " Gaufrey " is a 10746 alexandrines epic poem whose single manuscript, dated from the second half of the fourteenth century, is preserved at the Montpellier Ecole de Médicine Library. It is part of a group of seven poems from the Rebel Barons cycle, " Gaufrey " following " Doon de Maience " and preceeding " Ogier le Danois ". The study of the language reveals a chief characteristic of Picardy. The study of the characters searches the connections between the poem and those who preceeded it. Epic, supernatural and romance are combined in this late epic poem without any " decadence ". Gaurfey is the oldest of the twelve sons of Doon de Maience, and the father of Ogier ; with the oldet son of Garin de Monglane, Hernaut de Biaulande, he has to rescue his father, Doon, and Garin captured by the Saracens. Grifon, the traitor and Gaufrey's brother, is presented as Ganelon's father. He slanders his brother near Charlemagne. But the two genuine heroes are on the one hand Robastre, on the other hand a young saracen woman, Flordespine, whose tricks will animate the action.
