Jules Verne : le Roman du savoir : Valeurs et fonctionnements de l'écriture savante dans les romans de Jules Verne (1828-1905)

Abstract : Knowledge occupies a large portion in Verne's (1828-1905) works. In his books, the reader gets acquainted with new learning about the world around him : geography, ethnology, history, techniques, all these scholarly fields imprint themselves in the fictional work in order to create the "Knowledge's novels". As an actor of a time when culture's booming and science's progress had many followers the writer reflected on knowledge and the role it plays in narration within the Voyages extraordinaires. Never using the same tools, he offered several books where popularization was always present whether it was in long paragraphs or in short sentences, during dialogs or descriptions. Those scientific or cultural data take part at carefully chosen places. Even the characters are under the influence of this main purpose. Jules Verne, who was not interested in theory, thought in his cycle about the links between knowledge and science, between knowledge and fiction, between knowledge and society. This thesis deals with all this epistemological meditation, which is inherent to the nineteenth century, and shows precisely what was the writer's romantic look on his own times.
