Le thème de la vengeance des femmes dans la tragédie du XVIIe siècle, de la paix de Vervins (1598) à la Fronde (1648-53)

Abstract : The theme of the vengeance of women in the tragedy of the XVIIth century seems to present a tremendous diversity from the peace of Vervins (1598) to the Fronde (1648-1653). The very concept of vengeance has been prone to ambiguous interpretations since the oldest sources of western tradition to the studied years, when the state of rights appears. The evolution of opposite ideas about this passion has influenced its treatment in the tragedy. The aesthetics of the beginning of the century favor excessive and vindictive female characters. In the years ib3o poetry becomes concerned with propriety and decorum. Characters turn into passive beauties or into traitors and underline the moral function of tragedy. Corneille seems to refuse to compress the genre between the fixed norms. According to him, vengeance is a "noble and manly" passion, certain of its legitimacy, and can also arouse other decision of the state.
