La représentation des passions dans le théâtre tragique de la Renaissance [Texte imprimé] : Garnier, La Taille, Montchrétien

Abstract : In Jean de La Taille, Robert Garnier and Antoine de Montchrestien's tragedies, three Renaissance's French playwrights, passions become the mainspring of action and characterize roles in the play. Renaissance's tragic theater combines the pathos produced by deplorations and passions' dramatic construction which guides progressing action's rules. Influences coming from Bible, History and Seneca define imitation's conditions but passions' poetics and rhetoric lead imitation to reinvention underlining Renaissance's specificities. The moral point of view in passions' representation is studied through the pathos/catharsis mechanism, choosing a character becoming as important as action's structure. The process of catharsis in Renaissance's tragedies follows from a teaching pathos ; passions edify on moral and poolitic views. Passions' representation is directed by passions' tragic philosophy leading to a Christian theology. Tragedies representing human fault and God's punishment thus combine ancient and Christian conceptions about passions' theology.
