Lettres et féminité dans le "Roman de Silence" d’Heldris de Cornouailles

Abstract : The main character of the Roman de Silence by Heldris de Cornouailles (13th century) is feminine but the basis of the story relies in its need to pretend being a male. Womanhood is thus inplicitly questioned. Nevertheless the she-hero doesn’t write no letters, even though the story could let it think. The queen’s character, on the other hand, makes use of a letter in important circumstances. The female ways of dealing with speech and with truth are addressed by observing the connections between the two women.
