Résumé
Between 1857 and 1859 Alexandre Dumas published eleven tales from the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen's collections in his magazine Le Monte-Cristo. The texts have a particular status, between translation and rewriting. Dumas includes them in a causerie (chat) with the readers of his magazine, and they are framed in a story where an adult tells tales to children. This results in several modifications of the originals-such as the addition of explicative comments-which I study through a comparison of "Petit-Jean et Gros-Jean" and Andersen's "Little Claus and Big Claus." Underrated and forgotten, Dumas's tales are nonetheless representative of his particular style and bear witness to his storytelling skills. They also show similarities between Dumas and Andersen, who actually became acquainted in Paris in 1843.
