Musset et son oeuvre dramatique

Abstract : This thesis investigates on Musset’s dramatic work : his drama, his comedies and proverbs' and his dramatic poems. The work is split into two books : the first one dealing with the master work Lorenzaccio and the second with the remaining of Musset’s dramatic production. In the first book, entitled Lorenzaccio : la crise existentielle de l'auteur et du héros (Lorenzaccio : the existential crisis of the author and the hero), we applied ourselves firstly to show that the drama is the reflection of Musset's own uneasiness and disappointment with society, Lorenzo being thought of as one of the possible Mussets : someone whose pessimism evolves into neurosis ; secondly that the death of the hero is, in reality, a suicide. This is developed into a marked dramatic crescendo : pessimism, neurosis, suicide. This study, and this is true for the thesis as a whole, makes use of numerous critical methods, ancient and recent, depending upon the theme approached. The second book deals with the remaining dramatic work. The first part Le théâtre de l'amour (The theater of love), tackle with the theme recurring most often and estabished convergences and divergences between Musset with his stormy passions and his characters. The second part, Un théâtre aux multiples facettes (A multifacetted theater) approaches secondary themes, with a synthetic method. These two books are followed by a synthesis, aiming to place Lorenzaccio within the whole dramatic production
