In French. This study proposes a close study of early modern French literature through the history of cartography and readings in psychoanalysis. Cartographers as well known as Ptolemee, or less famous as Apian, Jolivet, and Abraham Ortellius, influenced French 16th century writers: Tory (Editor in Bourges), Oronce Fine (Cartographer and Mathematician of King Francis Ist) Rabelais, and Montaigne, who conceived their writings with various and always mobile articulations of space. Cartographers and explorers deeply influenced their sense of writings, of conceiving their Renaissance texts and maps in a more architectural and cartographic sense, affected their perceptions of the other, the indigenous figure, helped them to discuss the notion of the "self" and contributed to the emerging values of the French nation. Their writings and maps underline, explore and alter space. They map themselves in relation to an autonomous signature - that of the author, artist, cartographer, or editor. Integrating different historical, sociological and philosophical perspectives, the book proceeds to closely study cartographers' maps and their writings through visual elements such as letters, trompe-l'oeil, and anamorphosis, and show how this new medium influenced writings of sixteenth century, France. The work will explore the sense of the nation, will discuss the beginning of the autonomous geography of writing and the emergence of Renaissance values in France.
