L'auberge du Grand Cerf

Abstract : This is a study of the ways in which Diderot in Jacques the Fatalist describes the inn at which Jacques and his master arrive on the fifth day of their voyage. This long passage is characterised by a refusal of classic description and the massive reuse of anecdotes and qualities borrowed from the Grandval circle and in particular Mme d’Aine. The inn thus acquires an original status that tells us much about the kind of fiction Diderot wanted to promote.
