Le roman policier de Fred Vargas : mutations du romanesque et diffusion médiatique dans la France contemporaine

Abstract : In order to have a better understanding of the impressive success of Fred Vargas' detective novels, this thesis endeavours to place the writer in editorial landscape, analyses her positioning among the sub-categories of crime fiction, and aims to clarify the cathartic function in her literary creation. As a result, the study is about novelistic mutations, about transmedia and transnational spreading of Fred Vargas' works, with a corpus basically relating to the serie of the Three Evangelists and the serie of Commissaire Adamsberg. Some further approaches come from sociology of literature, textual analysis, and psychology of emotions in a pragmatic way. In this way, we can understand how Fred Vargas, within thirty years, was recognized as “the Queen of French crime novel" by literary critics, who celebrate her specific position and contribute to her mediatic and symbolic recognition. As an atypical author of detective novels, Fred Vargas mixes different sub-genres of crime fiction and proposes an original work based on an established art of “décalage", resisting to classification attempts, but providing a comforting pleasure to the reader.
