Sample text

Le signe + au-dessus d'une ligne en pointillé indique un mariage, ou du moins une union féconde. Le signe 4£ avertit d'une hostilité fondamentale. 2. Je ne parle pas d'une divergence qui se réduit à une différence d'expression en général, les cinq frères sont fils des cinq dieux; parfois ils sont, chacun, une portion, arjiia, du dieu correspondant, p. ex. I 67 2745-2746. Mythe et Épopée J se réduit même à cet épisode final, mais elle lui donne l'ampleur et la clarté souhaitables. Tout commence, on l'a vu, avec le malheur de Pându (I 118 4562-4592).

La grande édition de Poona, due au Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute, est certes critique autant que faire se peut 2, mais vaut aussi comme synoptique grâce aux parties, souvent très longues, qui s'y trouvent rejetées dans les notes ou dans les appendices. D'une façon générale, dans l'appréciation des passages interpolés, il est sage de « jouer conservateur » même les « chants encyclopédiques », le douzième et le treizième, ces enseignements touffus que donne Bhisma avant de daigner mourir, ne sont sans doute pas entièrement un corps adventice; quant à la BhagavadGïtâ, au début du sixième chant, si l'on peut penser qu'elle a été amplifiée et que l'esprit en a été modifié, elle n'en a pas moins, à ce point du poème, un rôle utile, conforme au caractère d'Arjuna 3.

Après lui, les enquêtes, les débats commencent 1. Pour la plupart des auteurs, la mise en correspondance des héros avec des dieux par incarnation ou filiation est un ornement secondaire, qu'on doit d'abord éliminer si l'on veut découvrir l'origine et comprendre la formation du poème. Suivant les explications de ce type, tout a dû partir d'une série d'événements réels, comme l'Iliade suppose un siège authentique mis devant Troie par des Grecs en chair et en os. Quels événements? Il n'était que de déceler, pour les rejeter, toutes les proliférations qui ont surchargé, recouvert la donnée première.
