    Entre ancrage juridique et tradition littéraire : « La Pupille » de Fagan et les tuteurs de Molière
    (AMU Press, 2011-06-30) Vickermann-Ribémont, Gabriele
    The best-known comedy written by Eighteenth-century minor dramatic author Fagan, The Pupille (1734), is to be understood against the background of the matrimonial law of the French Ancien Regime. The royal law article called « rapt de séduction », which inspired much of the contemporary literary production, gives full authority to parents or guardians, as opposed to the Catholic doctrine privileging free consent of parties. La Pupille plays a particular role in this context because the comedy does not ridicule either parents or guardians, and works out a marriage against their will; on the contrary, Fagan’s guardian is most comprehensive and will therefore prepare the final surprise.

    « Aux ordres de l’époux obéir, c’est le droit essentiel des épouses » : le mariage dans les écrits de la princesse Franciszka Urszula Radziwiłł (1705-1753)
    (AMU Press, 2011-06-30) Judkowiak, Barabara
    This article deals with the issue of love, marriage and motherhood, which dominates the work of the first Polish female writer to be at once both a poetess and a dramatist. It offers a reconstruction of the biographical context that strongly influences many of Radziwiłłowa’s utterances on this subject and sheds light on more general matters, such as the juridical and social situation of women in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.

    Du symbolisme architectural au symbolisme littéraire : Proust à l’école d’Emile Mâle
    (AMU Press, 2011-06-30) Fraisse, Luc
    Marcel Proust (1871-1922) debuted as a writer when the doctrine of symbolism was prevalent in the French literature. But his relationship with this contemporary trend is difficult to define. The reconstruction of historical and logical facts connected with this issue seems to indicate that Proust distanced himself from the poets and writers of symbolism; the word “symbol” itself would often be used in negative contexts in "In Search of Lost Time" which Proust started to write in 1908. At that time Proust was also impressed by the work of Émile Mâle entitled "L’Art religieux du XIIIe siècle en France" (Religious Art of the 13th century in France, 1898). Thus, it is through the contact with architecture, more than with literature, that the author of "In Search of Lost Time" explores the notion of symbolism when, based on consciously adopted rules, he gives his work the exact structure of a cathedral.

    À propos du difficile chemin vers soi-même dans quelques romans de Jean-Philippe Toussaint
    (AMU Press, 2011-06-30) Zbierska-Mościcka, Judyta
    Referring to anthropological reflections of Marc Augé and his proposed notions of supermodernity and non-places, the article discusses the identity of a contemporary man presented by examples of key novels by a Belgian writer, Jean-Philippe Toussaint (La Salle de bain, Monsieur, L’appareil-photo, La réticence, La télévision, Fuir, La vérité sur Marie). Toussaint’s characters are actually in a struggle against problems defined by Augé: lack of one’s own place, time for reflection and, mainly, a need for another human being.

    L’image du Japon dans « Ni d’Ève, ni d’Adam » d’Amélie Nothomb. Essai critique
    (AMU Press, 2011-06-30) Kowalski, Witold
    The goal of this paper is to present the place of Japan in "Ni d’Ève, ni d’Adam" of Amélie Nothomb. The paper is focused on the experiences and observations of Nothomb about Japanese mentality, civilisation, culture and the clash of cultures which writer lived through during her stay in Japan. The analysis of her images of this Eastern country leads to show an ambiguous and subjective portrait of Japan, sometimes surprisingly stereotypical, where the admiration for Japan turns easily into a disappointment and the incomprehension of Japanese principles and mentality.

    L’humanisme juridique de Louis Le Caron d’après son « Commentaire sur l’edict des secondes nopces » (1560)
    (AMU Press, 2011-06-30) Lombart, Nicolas
    The aim of this paper is to show the deep relationship between the second marriage as a juridical and political problem in France in 1560 and the critical method of the « juridical humanism » used by Le Caron, based on the desacralization of the Roman law (by using philosophical and historical references) and the glorification of the French language and civilization. In that extent, the Commentaire sur l’edict des secondes nopces (1560) may be seen as an exercise of « illustration » of the French juridical language (refering to the literary context of the marriage) and praise of the king of France (paterfamilias and lawgiver).

    Trois fois par mois ? dix fois par jour ? Montaigne et la réglementation du mariage dans « Sur des vers de Virgile » (Essais, III, 5)
    (AMU Press, 2011-06-30) Bjaï, Denis
    In his chapter “Upon some lines of Virgil” (Essays, III, 5), Montaigne relates the complaint of a poor Catalonian woman, to whom her husband fulfilled his conjugal duties at least ten times a day, and the arbitration the Queen of Aragon gave in her favour (?). This spicy story actually raises a tricky point of law, that Nicolas Bohier (Decisiones Aureæ, 1544), Antoine du Verdier (Les diverses leçons, 1577) and Guillaume Bouchet (Les Serées, 1584) had previously studied. After Montaigne, the case will be dealt with again in the works of Cholières and Brantôme.

    « C’est trahison de se marier sans s’espouser » – Montaigne et sa conception du mariage
    (AMU Press, 2011-06-30) Szeliga, Dorota
    This article is an attempt to look into an issue, many times undertaken by critics, of Montaigne’s attitude towards marriage. Major reflections on the subject are described by the author of the Essays in the chapter « Upon some verses of Virgil » (III, 5). However, comments scattered around other places, often contradictory in their nature, create a picture full of ambiguities.

    Un « roman idyllique » du XVe siècle et le droit matrimonial : « Paris et Vienne » de Pierre de La Cépède
    (AMU Press, 2011-06-30) Ribémont, Bernard
    Since the pioneering work of Myrrha Lot-Borodine identifying a particular form of the novel, with Floire et Blanchefl or as a founding text where a much more central role is given to women. I would like here to analyze Paris et Vienne, a text that critics had little studied, from the perspective of family law and matrimonial issues such that can be analyzed through the fiction that proposes to 1432, Pierre La Cépède. I will work on the short version, because condensed, only shows that the more deep springs of the text.
