Pierre Gringore dans et hors de Notre-Dame de Paris

Abstract : In « Notre-Dame de Paris », Victor Hugo helps his readers discover the end of the Middle Ages. In 1482, during the last year of Louis XI’s reign, la Esmeralda’s and Quasimodo’s adventures take place, but also those of Pierre Gringoire. In this atmosphere of historical and political changes – echoing that of the 1830s, Gringoire is the only one among the main characters, to have an alter ego, clearly identified in real life. To create this ridiculous but talented poet, poor but pretentious, coward but inventive, Victor Hugo freely drew his inspiration from Pierre Gringore. Active during a transition period, between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, Pierre Gringore has a lot in common with his fictional double, so that the poet’s activities, life and literary works provide as much information on the character’s as the character does on the analysis of the author’s work.
