Guillaume et Rainouart : figures du guerrier démesuré

Abstract : « Rainouart au tinel » and « Guillaume d'Orange » are figures, in their chanson de geste, ofexcessive warriors : supports of the monarchy, defenders of France, they are also troublemakers,each in their own way. Between epic and comic, paganism and Christianity, monstrosity andotherness, Guillaume and Rainouart draw both on a panel historical, literary and mythological.Burlesque and carnivalesque, Rainouart creates debate: based on extremes paradoxes, it is at oncepowerful knight and giant Saracen, turbulent monk and wacky cook. But the archetype on whichthis character is built is not exclusively medieval, and make considerable overlap with Dumezil'stheories, but also an expansion of these theories, as a bear, a kolbitr, but also a wild warrior.
