ÊTRE ET AGIR DANS UN ROMAN MÉDIÉVAL : LE « HAPPY END » DU TRISTAN EN PROSE SOUS UN JOUR PRAGMATIQUE

According to Goffman, the human activity can be described as a “face-work” (Goffman, 1974 [1967]: 15), respecting a particular set of societal rules as well as etiquette, and during this ‘work’ any (inter)actant strives to make a good impression. Should this be true, then it is worth analysing the romance, Le Roman de Tristan en prose, as illustrating this particular interaction which appears throughout the literary communication.
