La réception d'Aristophane en France de Palissot à Vitez (1760-1962)

Abstract : The modern era showed particular fascination for Aristophanes. This was partly due to the exemplary and unique nature of his work as well as his status within the symbolic field of Athenian democracy. This analysis focuses on the various features and different modalities of his reception from 1760 to 1962 in France. Through the study of the critical fortune and ideological interpretation of his works, including their main translations, adaptations and stage-directions, this thesis highlights the evolution and progression of the horizons of expectations and pinpoints the analogical mediations which elevate the author to a canonical status and lead him to the theatre repertoire. The delimitations of so-called ‘Aristophanic’ forms, which made the most of the interaction between stage and caricatures between 1840 and 1914, help the identification of these mediations.
