Cette etude se concentre sur le caractere grotesque de l'oeuvre abondante et variee creee par Boris Vian (1920-1959). Au cours d'une analyse textuelle detaillee, il ressort que personnages humains, animaux, objets et decors vianesques sont interchangeables a la maniere des elements qui peuplent les grotesques picturaux de la Renaissance. Ce monde imaginaire est base sur une structure semblable a celle du carnaval, tel que le concoit Bakhtine, ou l'on assiste a un renversement systematique du haut vers le bas et a une predominance des elements corporels topographiquement bas. L'exces et l'exageration s'averent etre des elements essentiels de l'oeuvre de Vian et ils permettent de l'associer au grotesque medieval, joyeux, et au grotesque contemporain, plus serieux.
