Le frisson de la passion (Les Historiques) (French Edition)
Its long-standing appeal to both popular and elite audiences through the mid-nineteenth century invites us to take another look at this work. Through his extensive cuts, footnotes, authorial interventions, and substantial modifications, Tressan composes an engaging sentimental romance for eighteenth-century sensibilities, one that evokes nostalgia for the bygone glories of medieval chivalry, revives a dream of French military valor, and fondly depicts a slight but earnest and talented young knight whose amorous desires are awakened and kindled for years only to be cruelly rejected.
If Antoine de La Sale refashions a knight into a courtier, as Michelle Szkilnik suggests 27 , Tressan follows suit, creating a contemporary hero who rises to prominence at court, commands respect as a general who defends France and models the best qualities of an eighteenth-century gentleman.
It is perhaps not without consequence that both the medieval romance and the eighteenth-century adaptation are end-of-career fictions for their authors, written when they were respectively 70 La Sale and 74 Tressan. He allegedly developed a youthful passion for medieval French chivalric romance in the Vatican library, while on a diplomatic mission. Although his military career had a promising start, he was passed over at several points for promotions.
Wounded at the battle of Fontenoy in , he asked the king for the honor of always fighting on the front as befitted his rank He participated in the sieges of Tournai, Bruges, Ghent and Oudenarde Then, at some point after and especially after , his military assignments involved supervision of outposts rather than front-line combat. Beyond the spectacle of the philosophes , advised Voltaire, his friend would have more time to cultivate his genius At the end of his life, Tressan installed himself in a country house in Franconville, where he dedicated himself to his family; in declining health, he was subject to frequent attacks of gout.
His collaboration with the Marquis de Paulmy on the BUR , beginning in , must have come as a timely distraction and a welcome source of additional income Tressan seeks not only to renew a sense of youthful vigor, but also to rekindle and revive the glory of aristocratic families and ultimately, as we shall see, to vaunt a particularly French national identity. Although the adaptor is delighted to see the names of many noble families cited in the original, with their blazons described exactly as they are in his day p. Tressan prefers to cut to the love story.
The adaptor refers interested readers to the edition for the full story in greater detail. Such contextualization follows the lead of Gueullette, who prefaced his edition with a lengthy description of chivalric titles Tressan cannot refrain from interjecting that he once owned an ax like the one used by the hero p. He includes references to Rabelais p. Hue without needing to, we learn p. Attempting to bridge the gap between medieval and contemporary sensibilities, Tressan appeals directly to female readers in his audience.
On two wheels...
In Tressan, a much less manipulative young woman is the often-unwitting victim of passions that have only been partially awakened in her. There are only four main combat sequences, each a different kind of chivalric encounter that pits French chivalry against Spain, Poland, England, and the infidels in Prussia, each an opportunity for the author to offer strong opinions about national character. The Spanish, as we have seen, share superior moral attributes with the French p.
The Polish charm through the nobility and simplicity of their costume, which both courtiers and ladies emulate p. The English, on the other hand, are turbulent bullies, unheeding of chivalric protocol p. If his indulgence towards Madame may have appealed to female readers, his sympathy for the young knight may well have appealed to aristocratic men who felt blindsided by social transformations in a country on the cusp of revolution. When Jehan returns, Madame des Belles Cousines spurns him; during dinner with Madame and Jehan, the abbot insults the honor of all knights and wrestles Jehan twice to the ground.
When he then lays the blue sash of loyalty that he had taken from Belles Cousines across her lap, he publically shames Madame by revealing that she is the subject of the scandalous story that the Queen and her ladies have just heard. Et cy commenceray la fin de ce compte, priant, requerant et suppliant a toutes dames et damoiselles, bourgoises et autres, de quelque estat que soient, que toutes prenent exemple a ceste si tres noble dame oiseuse qui par druerie se perdist, et veullent bien penser au dit commun qui dist: Onques ne fut feu sans fumee, tant fust il en terre parfont.
MK, p. Thus, when Jehan departs, Madame is not at first angry. Readers understand, along with Dr.
In Tressan, we learn that Madame visits the abbey on her own initiative for the express purpose of seeking pardons p. Tressan, once again, hints more broadly at the sexual undercurrents between the lady and the abbot. When a knight inflicts harm on another knight, Tressan explains, he shares some of the risk; but he should never cruelly attack a weak and defenseless woman. Tressan turns to his female readers and defends them against badly behaved men, making a final display of gallantry and implicitly exemplifying the advanced moral standards of his eighteenth-century readership:.
Ce fut la fin de sa vengeance et de son amour. A shocking scene of public shame becomes a flicker of private guilt, an open scandal an intimate secret. The spiteful retribution of a young man against a faithless lady who represents the wiles of femininity is domesticated as an act of gallant discretion.
Tressan thus appeals explicitly to female readers. Post-revolution, a new edition is published by Didot Jeune in 57 and in 58 , with four illustrations by Moreau le Jeune. A small paper copy, with an abridged Avant-Propos , fewer footnotes and no final explanatory note, appears in Geneva in Gueullette, Paris, Mouchat, , 3 vols.
Lami-Denozan, Paris, Firmin Didot, De la Gourmandise?
