Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] Fears and men: The expression of fear in Roland Dorgelès's Les Croix de bois We propose to study the feeling of fear in Roland Dorgelès's Croix de bois, a testimonial novel about the Great War published in 1919 He misses the Prix Goncourt, awarded to the young girls in flowers of Proust, but he wins The Femina Prize which ensures him a significant editorial success. After a general introduction to fear, the author and his novel - genesis, critics of Norton Cru, appreciation of François Le Grix and Albert Thibaudet - we present our working hypothesis: it seems that the novel is crossed of a motive, that of fear. Thanks to the Frantext database, we carry out a lexical survey first on Les Croix de bois and then on another novel on the same subject, Le Feu, by Henri Barbusse, published in 1916, Prix Goncourt of the same year. The confrontation is promising and allows us to verify the validity of our hypothesis. So we organize our contribution in three parts according to the subjects who feel the fear and in a gradation that goes from the individual to the community: the fears of the "new", the fears of the reprobate and those of the squad.
