Les lettres d'Adrien Galliot-Marie de Mandat-Grancey : édition critique de la correspondance familière d'un officier de la Marine royale française (1781-1791)

Abstract : Critical edition of the entirely unpublished handwritten correspondence between the Royal French Marine officer Adrien de Mandat-Grancey and his family. Belonging to Champagne’s aristocracy, he spent a long time in Brest, especially during his training as an officer. The « Grancey Collection », entirely digitized, consists of more than one hundred and fifty letters and also a certain number of appended documents. The critical edition of this correspondence is an exceptional valorization of a primary source from the Royal Marine history and a pathfinding work on significant questions about the epistolary genre at the turn of the Enlightenment. Indeed, Adrien’s polygraphical writing has allowed us to know how he places the familiar letter, between esthetical texts and professional and practical ones. This daily writing is subject to change, especially when Adrien experiences great events, such as the battle of the Saintes or the revolutionary riots : as a witness, he sets up narrative strategies to take into account his relatives’ expectations, his mother’s above all. The « place report » between the parents and their son determines the whole correspondence, then converted into a plea for Navy.
