Changements de voix : sur l'apostrophe au personnage dans l'Iliade

Abstract : Changing voices : on the narrator's apostrophe to characters in the Iliad Characters, mainly Menelaos and Patroclos, are directly adressed nineteen time by the performer in the Iliad. We study first the « interchange of persons » (On the Sublime, 26-27), ie the way this apostrophe disrupts in a spectacular way the narrative continuity (proper-name vocatives, second person, context). When the narrator adresses a heros instead of talking about him, he reveals a superior olympian knowledge of the action accomplished ; he invites us to read the inversed stories of Menelaos and Patroclos as intimately intricated ; he is true to the epic contract, building up the kleos the heroes are expecting.
