Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] We analyze direct discourse as a discursive structure, manifesting itself in distant moments in diachrony (16th-20th century). As an object, we chose the discourse reported in DD in the context of the discourse of dramatic action, in French theater. Our object concerns the fact that one character brings the word of another, citing it in direct speech, as for example in Phaedrus, where the death of Hippolyte is told by Theramene, who inserts into his story the last words uttered by the dying young prince, in DD. We chose the theater because of the relevance, qualitative and quantitative, of this kind in the history of French culture. From the point of view of its discursive nature, the DD embedded in the theatrical discourse exalts the dramatic nature that Bakhtin even attributes to "the simplest utterance". This is a very first check of the feasibility of such a research, by analyzing the DD of seven pieces. For the analysis, we considered the enunciative framework and its variations / reframing, the morphosyntactic aspects and the pragmatic-functional aspects. The enunciative organization changes according to the relationships that bind enunciators to each other at different levels of entrenchment. Enunciative reframing depends either on variations in the structure of entrenchment or on the enunciative nature of the DR (modality and time). The analysis allows to deepen the description of the phenomena concerning the SD and to put them in relation with the narrative and argumentative organization of the theatrical discourse. Some data also show the interest of pursuing research, to check on a richer corpus if the differences of frameworks and discursive reframing are appreciable from a diachronic point of view.
