Le personnage de la scène espagnole à la scène française, 1629-1663 : contribution à l'analyse de deux esthétiques dramatiques

Abstract : Despite the differences that oppose both dramatic arts, French imitations of the Spanish Golden Age theatre blossomed between 1630 and 1660. This study first recalls the cultural context in which these adaptations took place and the most striking features of the comedia. Then the analysis focuses on the characters in the tragi-comedies and comedies of three authors whose works are representative of the general trends : Rotrou, Boisrobert and Scarron. The choice of their reference models and the changes they made to them reveal that their interest is linked with the aristocratic value system praised by the Spanish theatre and its game of false appearances built on disguises. The adapters also distorted the structure of the comedia, introducing an imbalance between the characters, which tend to have fixed features. The comparison between French adaptations and their Spanish sources clarifies the evolutions and permanent features of this imitation movement which contributed to the development of the French theatre during the XVIIth century. It stresses that although both dramatic arts rely on the same principles, like propriety and verisimilitude, they led to opposite ideas of dramatic illusion.
