Description This study is an analysis of the role of music in its comparison with components of French grammar in some of youth novels by Erik Orsenna. The grammar is associated with a song and the music is close to linguistic structures (morphological, syntactic, phonetic and rhythmic). The writer puts the two systems in parallel and invites young readers especially to be passionate about grammar as well as about music according to the example of its two main characters, the young Jeanne and Thomas, who discover the two dimensions of human communication.
