Intensity and Conciseness in David Malouf's Jane Eyre

Abstract : This master's thesis is about conciseness and increase in tension in David Malouf's Jane Eyre, a libretto which is an adaptation for the contemporary operatic stage of the 1847 novel by Charlotte Brontë. The thesis is based on the translation of the libretto into French, and the development focuses on one of the specificities of the source text, namely its conciseness, which goes along with the building up of a tense emotional landscape. After a careful examination of how these two forces operate in Malouf's work, the issue of how to render the compactness and the subsequent tense emotional landscape of the source text in a translation into French is being dealt with.
