[en] The eighteenth-century 'conte'"Nocrion" adapts an Old French fabliau to explore the unsayable and the feminine body via a series of distancing devices: antiquarianism, euphemism, and other languages. This article highlights the fidelity shown by one of its presumed authors (the Comte de Caylus) to the medieval sources, with reference to another, similar, work, "Les Manteaux". Adapting comic medieval sources is a means of exploring the nascent concerns of philology.
