Pour une etude descriptive du style du Charroi de Nimes Baudouin, Rae Suzanne


This thesis is a stylistic study of the 12th Century chanson de geste, Le Charroi de Nîmes. The material presented has been divided into four main chapters. After an introductory chapter, Chapter II considers the composition of the chanson, the interrelation of the laisses. The third examines the assonance of the poem and its possible effect on the syntactic structure of the decasyllable; the fourth groups the formulae of the Charroi de Nîmes according to the motifs which they express. In a final chapter a passage of the chanson is analysed according to the results obtained in the two preceding chapters.
