Dispositifs énonciatifs : de la fonction ornementale au procédé cognitif

Abstract : La Henriade brought elements of reflection, in the conception of fiction, and in the choice of an era that is "at the end of one age, and at the birth of another age, between the old and the new mores. ", Chateaubriand rereading here the dynastic passage from the Valois to the Bourbons with the torch of the Revolution. Henriade, which tells the story of a violent turning point in history, has made a fruitful contribution over time to the reconfiguration of history in the fictional narrative. This poem, one of the origins of Voltaire's historiographical writing, is also a milestone in the fiction's appropriation of the historical narrative.
