Paysages et saisons : les réseaux métaphoriques du réel dans les "Rerum Vulgarium Fragmenta" de Pétrarque

Abstract : My thesis scrutinizes the use of almost 640 occurrences related to the semantic fields of landscapes and seasons (landforms, shores, rivers, vegetation, rocks, reefs, clouds and "nebula") in the "Rerum Vulgarium Fragmenta". It is the textual environment in which each of them fits that distinguishes it from others and bends its signified; and yet they complement one another dynamically, interacting with all those who are on the same paradigmatic axis. The first chapter examines their morphology in a contextual and intertextual way, to identify the chronotope's isotopy in the "canzoniere" ; we will see by the diversification and the enrichment of their metaphorical uses that landscapes and seasons emerge as diegetic issues. The composition of the "liber" partakes of a complex temporality that blurs the chronology of its composition for each of its "fragmenta" ; it is by taking into account, in the second chapter, this double diachronic dimension, that it was possible to better understand the continuing evolution which is at work in and through metaphors. They allow from a known data (including as a literary topos) to explore a reality (indoor) otherwise elusive, the poet-lover's "real". The last chapter will allow us to analyze the metaphorization process implemented by Petrarch when the chronotope's recurrences acquire an ethical and metapoetic scope.
