Item description for Gaydon: Chanson de geste du XIIIe siecle (Ktemata) by J. Subrenat...

La Chanson de Roland se terminait sur les larmes de Charles contraint de repartir pour une nouvelle campagne. Mais l'empereur a aussi des soucis de politique interieure; en effet, la condamnation et la mort de Ganelon, a la suite du duel judiciaire par lequel Thierry d'Anjou avait demontre sa culpabilite, ne pouvaient qu'entrainer une volonte de vengeance de la part de son lignage. Tel est le sujet dramatique de la chanson de Gaydon. Les parents du traitre vont tout mettre en oeuvre pour d'abord detruire la relation privilegiee entre Thierry, heros eponyme de la chanson - Gaydon - (un geai s'etant pose sur son casque en signe d'election), ensuite le faire condamner a mort sur une fausse accusation, enfin, pour faire bonne mesure, tuer egalement l'empereur. Cette chanson de geste, un peu oubliee depuis son edition en 1862, est a nouveau proposee dans la version du Ms f. fr. 860 de la BNF, particulierement interessant parce que, outre sa grande qualite codicologique, il la rattache directement a un "remaniement" de la Chanson de Roland au XIIIe siecle, enrichie par une influence de la Chronique du Pseudo-Turpin. L'edition est accompagnee d'une presentation, d'une traduction en francais moderne, d'un dossier de variantes de l'autre manuscrit du XIIIe siecle, de nombreuses notes justificatives ou explicatives et d'index raisonnes.
