Les guerres d’Italie entre chronique et épopée : le renouveau de l’écriture héroïque française et néo-latine en France au début de la Renaissance

Abstract : The dissertation presents a comparative study of the long narrative poems composed on the first Italian wars (1494-1514) during the reigns of Charles VIII and Louis XII by Neo-Latin and French poets: Fausto Andrelini's De Neapolitana Fornoviensique Victoria and André de La Vigne's Voyage de Naples, Valerand de La Varanne's Carmen de expugnatione Genuensi and Jean Marot's Voyage de Gênes, Antoine Forestier's Chilias heroica de regis Ludovici duodecimi in Venetos Victoria and Jean Marot's Voyage de Venise. The first part places these works in their historical context, their authors in curial and humanist circles, and specifies their conditions of reception. The second part analyses their ambition to immortalise the actions of their contemporaries through their form and style. The third part compares the French and Neo-Latin practices of the great genre - epic, prosimeter - by studying the dispositio, elocutio and models of the poems, in particular in the battle scenes and the relations of entries. Finally, the fourth part deals with the political, moral and religious dimensions of these works, which reveal the poets' commitment to the ideological debates of their time (national consciousness, royal image), their project of edifying the reader and the affirmation of their dignity as authors. This study is accompanied in a second volume by an edition of the De Neapolitana Fornoviensique Victoria (1078 c.) based on five manuscripts and two printed works (1503 and 1513), with its translation, and by the transcription and translation of the Carmen (1502 c., 1508) and the Chilias (1000 c., 1510).
