Expériences de lecteurs. La réception d’auteurs antiques à la croisée de l’histoire et de la littérature

Abstract : It is interesting to reflect on reception that a historian can reserve for a novel and reading that a writer can have of a historian book, without any chronological limitation. For instance a certain writer may be led to speak about his reading of Herodotus, Cassius Dion, Marc Bloch... and a certain historian of his reading of Sue, Zola, Binet, ... On this occasion, each one delivers elements on his own conception of history or fiction. It is from different formulations of cross-eyes that the contributors of this issue investigate the specificities of historian and writer’s works. Studies deal with a plurality of forms of writing which may involve considerations both on the "discipline" of the author envisaged and on that which compels him, if the receiver distinguishes one from the other. They choose to focus on ancient authors. In both Greeks and Romans cultures the opposition between literature and history is not self-evident: the epic, as a memorial of the most remote past, is the ancestor of history, which is brought closer to Poetry. The reception of Antiquity thus favors by nature confrontation of varied approaches and genres.
