CORPUS OF NARRATIVE LITERATURE, FROM THE MIDDLE-AGE TO THE 20th CENTURY

Novels – Tales – Short stories

 

A CLASSIC IN ELECTRONIC EDITIONS

 

Co-produced by Classiques Garnier Numérique and the CNED – French Ministry of Education


The Corpus of narrative literature gives online access to more than 1,000 narrative works (novels, tales, short stories).
From Chrétien de Troyes to Alain-Fournier and Marcel Proust, the Corpus de la littérature narrative brings together the greatest authors and the greatest works of the last eight centuries and offers the possibility to cross-search them in simple and complex ways.
It is both a basic and a specialised library that covers all French study-programs from the High school to University (ordinary and competitive examinations). Moreover, specialists and researchers will find texts with appropriate bibliographical references edited according to the rules of scientific publishing.

TEXT
The text chosen for the electronic edition is the last version of the original work published during the author’s life and reviewed by him. If this text does not exist, the most reliable version of the text is chosen by a specialist (another edition from his lifetime, a posthumous edition, a manuscript, etc.).

EDITING LEVELS
•The diplomatic edition: the published edition is the exact copy of the printed original.
•The modern written form if necessary.
•The translated edition for the medieval period (given with the version in ancient French).
