(French abstract below)
On his blog of Feb. 7 2007, Bart Beaty wrote about Ile Bourbon 1730: “this is a well-crafted but minor work,” and goes on saying “certainly not essential in the grand scheme of all things Trondheimian.” If it is possible to argue that within the “grand Trondheimian scheme” made of numerous creative and funny formal inventions, this particular bande dessinée is not especially innovative, this same argumentation poses the problem of the blindness of a formalist critique. In my essay, I show that Ile Bourbon 1730 constitutes a critique of the traditional French history which, up to recently, ignored slavery. In this perspective, formal aspects, even if they are not entirely new, are smartly used to deconstruct the official history, leading the reader to decide for him/herself how to read a BD in general, and this one in particular.

Sur son blog du 7 février 2007, Bart Beaty écrit à propos de Ile Bourbon 1730 (2006) : « this is a well-crafted but minor work. […] certainly not essential in the grand scheme of all things Trondheimian ». S’il est vrai que dans le « grand schème trondheimien » fait de nombreuses inventions formelles intelligentes et amusantes, Bourbon n’est pas une œuvre particulièrement innovante, elle constitue une critique de l’histoire traditionnelle française qui jusqu'à tout récemment ignorait l’esclavage. Dans cette perspective, les aspects formels, même s’ils ne sont pas entièrement neufs, sont remarquablement utilisés pour déconstruire l’histoire officielle et amener le lecteur engagé à réagir en se distançant du héraut pour se faire sa propre opinion.
