Héros et orateurs : Rhétorique et dramaturgie cornéliennes

0.00 CHF

The cornelien tragedy is the response to the sophistic suspicion that weighed heavily on 17th century theatre. Counting on the heroic powers of words, it wanted to be the theatre that healed theatre; it wanted to be the mimesis that made Plato a liar and that liberated the soul, just as did the myths of philosophy or the visions of mystics. The backdrop to this enterprise was the Century of saints, with its Jesuits and Jansenists, as well as the Great French Century with its kings, nobility, and Christian civility. The purpose of this book is to elucidate the philosophic and theological stakes of this theatre that wanted to please by loftiness of purpose. In turning the comic illusion on itself with the vision of the duel between heroes and orators, it wanted to awake the soul to its capacities for love, liberty and proclaimed faith. It is in the wake of the Age de l'èloquence (Droz, 1980), that Marc Fumaroli, who was recently inducted into the Académie française, has completed this study.
