Natura in fabula. Topiques romanesques de l’environnement

Abstract :

The papers brought together in Natura in Fabula focus on nature and environment-related issues in the novel, addressing them from the perspective of topics through the identification of recurrent narrative patterns. Nature often functions as a setting with its scenographies and topographies, but it may also embody an entity which man, more than the novel’s characters, is to cope with.
How do natural topoi work in writing, owing to their malleability or reversibility in a literary text? To what extent do historic turning points impact these topoi, encouraging new ones to emerge? And what kinds of “eco-logics” do they help elaborate regarding man’s relation with nature in works of fiction?
