Recherche sur les Enfances Garin de Monglane accompagnées d'une édition critique d'après le manuscrit unique Paris, B.N. fr., 1460

Abstract : Les Enfances Garin de Monglane, introductory Chanson de Geste in the Guillaume d'Orange Cycle, is also the latest poem. The sole manuscript known as of today, Paris B.N., fr. 1460, shows numerous mistakes. Hence, the synoptic edition offers a corrected version faincg a transcription from the manuscript. This correction is not a reconstruction from the original text, it should be used to help the reader by giving - when possible - some interpretation of the most difficult sentences. The notes give clues as to the nature of the corrections and the meaning of some verses ; they underline the linguistic peculiarities and suggest some links with other texts. They are followed by a table of last names and by a glossary. The introduction serves a double purpose : clearly establishing the rules of presentation for the two texts and showing the material and linguistic characterisitics of the manuscript and the literary singularity of the poem. The manuscript has been realised in the Lille region at the end of the XVth century. The history of the manuscript before its being part of François the Firt's Personal Library rests unknown. The grammatical analysis shows that the language of the copy is late and tainted with picard features. This data, associated with literary and historical considerations, suggests that the text has been created in the circle of the Dukes of Burgundy, around 1410. The poems counts 5078 alexandrines, distributed in monorhyme laisses, ending by orphan verses. The story mixes the characteristics of a late Chanson de Geste and the structure of Enfances. The numerous quotes of famous texts and the integration of the persecuted wife theme in the Guillaume Cycle show that the poem is a renewal of these adventures, aiming towards the success of the story.
