Abstract : In this thesis, a much eshaustive study is lead on academician Henri Troyat's very important writings output: 107 novels and biographies. This study deals with a novelist view of old Russia which he was able to receive from his family who had a narrow escape from Russia in the early twenties of the twentieth century. He was by then only 9 years old, but he gathered a lot. A second point of view on this author's production is focussed on many tsars and tsareens, so as famous writers and music compositors biography. This thesis aims are to reach to a knowledge of social life, habits, religious customs prevailing in old Russia and that seem to be everlasting now. Parallel between both French and Russian culture is drawn. Henri Troyat is a bicultural as it appears from his writings. Such is the purpose of this study. A glossary, at the end, gathers some very caracterislic russian expressions which are obviously, derived from french whose meanings are different.
