image of Daphnis

Written in the last decades of the sixteenth century and anonymously published for the first time in 1616, Agrippa d’Aubigné’s epic poem Les Tragiques offers an unusual literary testimony of interconfessional violence during the Wars of Religion in early modern France. Focusing on Aubigné’s aim to give a documentation of violence for generations to come, this article discusses the complex relationship between testimony and epic narration.Agrippa d’Aubignés Epos Les Tragiques, das der Autor 1616 nach jahrzehntelanger Bearbeitungszeit erstmals anonym veröffentlicht, stellt in Hinblick auf die gewaltsamen konfessionellen Auseinandersetzungen, die Frankreich in der zweiten Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunderts erschütterten, ein außergewöhnliches Beispiel literarischer Zeugenschaft dar. Mit Blick auf das unverkennbare Anliegen des Autors, die erlittene Gewalt zu bezeugen und der Nachwelt zugänglich zu machen, erörtert der vorliegende Artikel das testimoniale Potenzial epischen Erzählens.
