Abstract

The use of the term “cycle” in Arthurian studies dates back to at least the 1830s and it has been accepted as an established fact. However, it is only recently that a more precise portrayal was developed. In the first part of this contribution, we will explore the notion of “cycle” by highlighting the questions that led to its adoption. We will emphasize, alongside the traditional notion, the more recent concepts of “cyclicity” and “cyclification”. In the second part, these concepts will be reconsidered in the light of text transmission by analyzing the mechanisms of formation of pluritextual archetypes and vulgates, the interaction between external and internal cyclification, and the activation of intercyclical dynamics. We will refer to this complex reality, both actual and virtual, as a “cyclical environment”.

Le recours au mot « cycle » dans les études arthuriennes remonte au moins aux années 1830 et apparaît d’emblée comme un fait acquis. Ce n’est toutefois que depuis quelques décennies qu’une réflexion plus spécifique s’est mise en place. Dans la première partie de cette contribution, nous nous proposons d’explorer la notion de « cycle » en mettant en lumière les exigences qui ont conduit à son adoption. Nous mettrons en valeur, à côté de la notion traditionnelle, celles plus récentes de « cyclicité » et « cyclification ». Dans la deuxième partie, ces notions seront mises à l’épreuve de la transmission des textes, en analysant les mécanismes de formation d’archétypes et vulgates pluritextuelles, la synergie entre cyclification externe et interne, l’activation de dynamiques de type intercyclique. C’est cette totalité, à la fois actuelle et virtuelle, que nous proposons d’appeler un « environnement cyclique ».
