Abstract

This review is a recension of Vĕra Soukupová's thesis, which proposes to study the way in which the chronicler Jean Froissart, through a precise and comparative reading of the different drafts of the Chroniques and their rich paratextual apparatus, constructs both his account of events and his image as an author, in a rich social network that places him at the heart of the history of the Franco-English war and of a multitude of peripheral historical events taking place well beyond this precise context. The review focuses, firstly, on the study, carried out in the first part of the book, of Froissart's perception of himself in his time and in his profession as a historian, in the midst of a rich network of patrons. The second part of this review focuses on the work carried out on the historian's sources, his way of considering them and the treatment he gave them. The question of writing history, more precisely, is dealt with in this part.
