Synopsis

A travers tout le XIXe siecle, l'empire des tsars et ses habitants ont largement inspire la production litteraire en France. Mais si des recherches se sont interessees aux recits de voyages, aux journaux et aux correspondances, la Russie en tant qu'objet de la fiction est generalement jugee ininteressante car tres eloignee de la realite. Reposant sur l'analyse d'un corpus de cent textes environs, ce livre se propose de reveler toute la richesse de la Russie et des Russes imagines par la fiction francaise du XIXe siecle - un imaginaire effectivement peu fidele a la realite russe, mais fortement influence par le contexte historique des relations franco-russes dont il retrace les hauts et les bas.

Trois stades d'evolution se degagent entre la debacle napoleonienne de 1812 et la Revolution russe de 1917. Pendant la premiere moitie du XIXe siecle, l'image de l'autre, du Russe, reprise au XVIIIe siecle se fragmente en plusieurs types. Entre 1855 et 1880 environs, ces types - le tsar, le prince, le Cosaque, le moujik, la femme-martyre et la seductrice - evoluent devant un arriere-plan egalement stereotype et forment un veritable univers imaginaire qu'auteurs et lecteurs identifient comme " russe ". Entre 1880 et 1917 enfin, l'harmonie de l'univers est passagerement mise en cause par l'intrusion des nihilistes. Cependant, au meme moment, de nombreux textes de la decadence recourent aux personnages russes parfaitement excessifs, et la litterature populaire diffuse abondamment le concept de l'ame slave.
