Abstract

This paper traces the results of a research project in digital humanities, eBalzac. This project aim to place Honoré de Balzac’s entire oeuvre in conversation with a vast corpus of contemporary writings that may have inspired the former, in the literary or scientific field (medicine, physiology, natural sciences). The objective is to enable more advanced research and hypertextual comparisons in order to detect correspondences, borrowings, quotations, repetitions, and possibly plagiarism; and thus create a digital cartography of the Balzacian universe based on the traces other authors left on his work. The first achievement of the project is the site ebalzac.com, which offers a highly corrected edition of all The Human Comedy and the possibility of making genetic comparisons on the multiple versions corrected by the author, whose contributions are detailed here.
Cet article trace le bilan d’une expérience de recherche en humanités numériques, celle du projet éditorial eBalzac, visant à mettre en résonance l’ensemble de l’œuvre balzacienne avec un vaste corpus d’écrits contemporains qui ont pu la nourrir, dans le domaine littéraire ou scientifique (médecine, physiologie, sciences naturelles). Son objectif est de permettre des recherches et des comparaisons hypertextuelles afin de faire émerger des correspondances, de repérer des emprunts, des citations, des reprises, des plagiats éventuels, et de constituer ainsi une cartographie de l’univers intellectuel de Balzac à partir des traces que d’autres textes ont laissées dans son œuvre. La première réalisation du projet est le site ebalzac.com, qui propose une édition très corrigée de toute La Comédie humaine et la possibilité d’effectuer des comparaisons génétiques sur les multiples versions corrigées par l’auteur, dont les apports sont ici détaillés.
