Comment estimer l’oeuvre de Gabriel Chappuys ? Quelques remarques a propos de la traduction des Dialogues philosophiques de Giraldi Cinzio

Abstract : Gabriel Chappuys was the most prominent French translator of Italian and Spanish in the years 1575-1610. His work consists of more than 60 titles. The quality of the original works gave its literary importance as cultural mediation: chivalric fiction, courteous behavior literature, tridentine spirituality found in Chappuys’ translations an essential contribution to their diffusion in France. On the other hand its own stylistic qualities were on a lower scale. Chappuys’ work has to be estimated as a mere editorial activity obedient to business demands. His translation of Giraldi’s Dialoghi filosofici, published in 1583-1584 by the Parisian bookseller Abel L’Angelier was aimed to provisionally take place in a new collection devoted to courtesy and moral philosophy. It was soon out of fashion. In 1588, Montaigne’s Essays took its place in the stationer’s shop; on the same subject, it was the victory of a French original literary work on a less convincing translation from the Italian.
