abstract:
[FR] Les élégies en vieil-anglais sont des poèmes lyriques ou moraux, exprimant la souffrance, la solitude, le regret du passé, etc. L’auteur leur compare les poèmes gallois anciens conservés dans le Livre noir et le Livre rouge : ces poèmes se présentent comme des extraits de légendes (cycles de Llywarch Hen, de Heledd). Il est vraisemblable que les littératures anglaises et galloises ont connu un genre narratif destiné à la récitation, et mêlant prose et poésie.

[EN] Old English elegies are lyrical and moral poems expressing solitude, suffering, regret for the past etc. The author compares them to the ancient Welsh poems preserved in the Black Book of Carmarthen and in the Red Book of Hergest: these poems are taken as extracts from sagas (e.g. the cycles of Llywarch Hen and of Heledd). It seems probable that Old English and Welsh literatures had a special narrative genre, intended to be performed before an audience, in which prose and verse were mixed together.
