Pour une autre histoire : Feuilletages textuels dans Adèle (1820) de Nodier

Abstract : A witness to the Revolution and beginning his literary career at the time when Walter Scott's first novels arrived in France, Charles Nodier set some of his first stories in the context of the Vendée wars. However, Les Proscrits, Adèle and Thérèse Aubert are not historical novels, as history is integrated into them in an oblique manner. These stories play with the codes of the sentimental novel, referring to various generic intertexts or political current events, in a textuality that intertwines amorous intrigue and fragments of historical events. By unearthing the historical significance of Werther's world, Nodier creates a different way of talking about the past, one that emphasises affects or emotions. Through the proscribed, the Girondins, the Vendéens, these stories write a history of the defeated.
