Title: La Littérarité des belles-lettres
Subtitle: Un défi pour les sciences du texte?
Edited By: Claire Badiou-Monferran
URL: http://www.classiques-garnier.com
Description:

Les spécialistes en «sciences du texte» réunis ici s'interrogent sur la pertinence à aborder en termes esthétiques des textes antérieurs à l'avènement de la notion d'esthétique. Parallèlement, ils évaluent la capacité de leurs disciplines à appréhender la littérarité de cette littérature d'avant la littérature.

The specialists in “the science of the text” reunited here debate the pertinence of applying aesthetic terms to texts which predate the notion of aesthetics. At the same time, they evaluate the ability of their discipline to grasp the literariness of this literature before literature.
