Les Hymnes homériques comme prières poétiques et comme offrandes musicales : Le chant hymnique en acte

Abstract : As a prooimion to an Homeric recitation on an aedic or rhapsodic mode on the occasion of a cult celebration, the Homeric hymn is to be considered as a song act, addressed to a divinity; the god is praised and finally invoked, as he is asked to intervene. The performance of the hymn corresponds to a ritual and musical offering. Combining an approach of ethnopoetics and discourse analysis, it is possible to show how the enunciative procedures of every Homeric hymn and its narrative part with its argumentative function transform the hymnic poem in a ritual and efficacious song act. So will appear the pragmatics of the poetic and hymnic voice in the musical and ritual relationship the aoidos or the rhapsode (with his public) is involved towards the sung divinity.
