<< Reproduction and Innovation in Literarure. The Narrative

Rewriting in Armenia: Two Examples

Bernard Outtier (National Center for Scientific Research, Paris and University Geneva)


Rewriting has been used in the every part of the Armenian literature since almost the beginning: for the Bible as for history. We shall study to different genres: an apocryphal text, the Gospel of Nicodemus and a small novel, the Story of the young man and the young girl. We shall try to understand the motivation of the rewriting and ask: are the general laws?
