La nostalgie de la civilisation. Les représentations de l’Ancien Régime dans les romans sensibles, les romans historiques, les vies romancées et les vies édifiantes (1789-1847)

Abstract : The French Revolution creates a History’s acceleration and the concept of the Ancien Regime, on institutional and impressionist levels. After 1789, numerous novelists, historical or sentimental (many times both), born during Louis XV and Louis XVI reigns, express nostalgia for Ancien Régime’s civilization. They write about the highlights of the Bourbon’s monarchy, the “douceur de vivre” of the Marie-Antoinette era or the medieval courtesy (in troubadour pieces of work about ladies and knights). This doctoral thesis explores the purposes and methods of the representation of prerevolutionary periods in novels. The large corpus (1789-1847) include famous male (Chateaubriand, Florian, Sade) and female (Mme Cottin, Mme de Genlis, Mme Gay, Mme de Souza) authors and several “minores” – some of them still ignored by modern studies - (Mme de Bawr, Mme Brossin de Méré, Mme Candeille, Guesdon, l’abbé Proyart …)
