Abstract:

The hallmark technique of Jane Austen's mature writing - known as free 
indirect discourse (FID) - is responsible for what has become known as the 
'inward interest' of Austen's writing. In Persuasion, FID is used extensively to 
represent the complex life of the heroine's mind as she converses with 
herself. Austen's posthumously published «late» novel Persuasion was first 
translated into French in 1821 by Isabelle de Montolieu as La Famille Elliot, 
ou l'ancienne inclination. The present study focuses on the question of how 
Montolieu handled FID in her French translation: At the time she was 
translating Persuasion into French, FID did not exist as a formal grammatical 
category. Neither did Montolieu have the possibility of seeking a model in the 
works of Flaubert - whose own extensive and innovative use of FID is 
comparable to Austen's - as he was writing much later in the century.
Previous translation studies have completely ignored this very crucial aspect 
of this translation. The author adopts a cross-disciplinary approach 
encompassing the history of publication, Jane Austen studies, translation 
studies, and narratology. This book tests the applicability of the conceptual 
framework of narratology within the field of Translation Studies. The author 
identifies key analytical concepts from the field of narratology and applies 
them to Montolieu's translation with the aim of revealing what happened to 
Austen's FID when Persuasion was first translated into French. 

Contents: The Fate of Persuasion's Self-conversing Heroine: What becomes 
of her in La Famille Elliot? - Austen's Reception in France and La Famille 
Elliot's Reception in Translation Studies - Speech and Thought 
Representation in Fictional Narrative - Tracking Anne Elliot's Consciousness 
in Montolieu's La Famille Elliot - The Marriage of FID and ON: A Marriage 
frequently Made in this Translation. 

Adam Russell holds a PhD in French and Comparative Literature from the 
Universities of Paris IV and Melbourne. Currently, he is an associate lecturer 
in French in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Tasmania. Previously, he 
worked as a reader in English language and literature at the Lycees Henri IV 
and Louis-le-Grand in Paris. He received a BA and an MA from the University 
of Paris IV - Sorbonne, before undertaking doctoral studies there. His recent 
publications include articles on the use of free indirect discourse in 
Montolieu's La Famille Elliot in journals such as Persuasions: The Jane 
Austen Journal and the New Zealand Journal of French Studies.
