Abstract:

The majority of the chapters in this book were originally presented as
papers at a conference held at Queen's University Belfast in September
2006. The volume explores the oral-written dynamic in the conte
français/francophone, focusing on key aspects of the relationship between
oral and written forms of the conte. The chapters fall into four broad
thematic areas (the oral-written dynamic in early modern France; literary
appropriations and transformations; postcolonial contexts; storytelling in
contemporary France: linguistic strategies). Within these broad areas, some
chapters deal with sources and influences (such as that of written on oral
and vice versa), others with the nature of the discourse resulting from an
oral-written dynamic (discourse structure, linguistic features etc.), some
with the oral-written interface as it affects the definition of genre,
others with the role of the 'oral' within the literary or written text (use
of storytelling scenarios, the problematics inherent in
transcribing/adapting the spoken word, etc.). This chronological and
methodological range allows us to situate the emergence of the form in
socio-cultural and historical terms, and to open up debate around the role
of the conte in particular geographical and political contexts: regional,
national, European and postcolonial.

This book contains contributions in both English and French.
