La métamorphose dans les récits brefs du xiie siècle
Une matrice narrative

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: Motifs merveilleux et poétique des genres au Moyen Âge

  • Abstract: In twelfth-century short stories, metamorphoses generally function to interrogate the human psyche. This article shows that their function is specialised in relation to the subject being treated and the nature of the transformation: while classical matter privileges permanent transmutations which are the vehicle for a lesson of a general order, Celtic accounts prefer cyclical or ephemeral transformations which are markers of the individual development of the hero.
