La citation de l’autre: discours direct et altérité dans les relations de voyage des missionnaires aux Antilles au XVIIe siècle

Abstract [fr]

À partir du constat que la manière dont la littérature viatique incorpore et « cite » l’autre est complexe et relève de plusieurs stratégies d’écriture (mots vernaculaires, discours direct, discours indirect, etc.), cet article propose d’étudier comment quelques relations de voyage aux Antilles du dix-septième siècle inscrivent les paroles autres dans la narration. Nous interrogerons plus précisément l’inclusion des discours directs dans la trame narrative, dans le but de voir à quelle fin la relation de voyage se fait l’écho des voix d’autrui et comment ces voix interviennent dans la construction de l’altérité. Il sera démontré que par le truchement du pathos, la voix de l’autre fait plus que couronner le voyageur d’héroïsme ou remplir le texte d’objets linguistiques exotiques. Elle agit sur le lecteur et compte parmi les figures servant à dynamiser la relation de voyage.

Abstract [en]

Taking as a point of departure the fact that travel writing incorporates and quotes others in a complicated fashion, using a large variety of writing strategies (vernacular words, direct and indirect discourse, and so on), this article sets out to study how a select number of travelogues about the Caribbean from the seventeenth century include other voices in their narratives. More precisely, the aim is to interrogate the inclusion of direct discourses in the texts with the objective to understand the motivation behind making other voices heard and how these voices intervene in the construction of alterity. The article argues that through the uses of pathos, the voice of the other has other functions than to simply play into the heroization of the voyager or to fill the texts with exotic linguistic objects. These voices are meant to touch the reader and can be considered among the figures that contribute to the dynamics of travel writing.
