A l’aube d’une histoire littéraire : comment les textes grecs de l’époque impériale ont-ils cristallisé le canon classique?

Abstract
The scholars agree that Antiquity must be divided into time periods: Archaic Greece, Classical antiquity, Hellenistic Greece, Imperial period and late Antiquity, the two latter having led to growing interest in the last decades although they had been discredited as decadent for a long time. The aim of this paper is to investigate how the authors of the Imperial era gave rise to such a periodization, but also how they are responsible themselves of the long-lasting belief that they were decadent. Beginning by Dionysus Halicarnassus’ texts, I will analyse how the canon of the “great” ancient authors already grew up in the first century AD – including Homer, the tragedians, the attic orators, Plato –: the preference given to attic language, which is now named Atticism, over bombastic rhetoric of Hellenistic Greece, called Asianism, is the cause of the opposition we still make between the classical and the alexandrine periods. Then I will deal with the omnipresence of this canon in the imperial texts by statistically studying references to the classical texts. Finally, the aim of this paper is to shed light on an apparent paradox: while the authors of the first-third century BC gave rise to the periodisation of antiquity we still depend on, they also played a part in seeming decadent. Having taken it in consideration, I will finally investigate how the narratology permitted us to rehabilitate them in the recent past and will pursue to do so in the years to come.
