Écrire le féminin dans les œuvres d’Hélisenne de Crenne : Les angoysses douloureuses qui procedent d’amours, Les epistres familieres et invectives et Le songe de Madame Helisenne

Abstract : Our study focuses on the advent of Hélisenne de Crenne-écrivain and the genesis of a trilogy, varied in its discursive, generic and enunciative diversity. The first part deals with the heterogeneity of the Hélisenne triptych. To warn readers against the dangers of carnal desire, Dame Hélisenne imitates, experiments and innovates the source texts (the Flame of Bocace, the Peregrin of Caviceo, the Ad familiares of Cicero, the Opus de Conscribendis epistolis of Erasmus and the Dream of Scipio). She is constantly looking for new forms of writing (sentimental novels, epistles, allegory) to seduce the reader and confirm her elegantia and erudition. The second part focuses on the analysis of the variations of love and its circumstances on the female character. In order to do this, Dame Hélisenne resorts to pathetic emphasis (the pitiful style), juxtaposes genders and registers, multiplies figures of thought and exempla, and exercises herself in "virile works" in order to defend the feminine cause, revalue the status of the woman-writer; and prove her knowledge and intellectual evolution, in a dense and rich humanist culture. Finally, the third part focuses on the production, publication and reception of these singular texts, revealing a double quest for identity and unity.
