L'image de Molière dans les manuels scolaires depuis le XIX° siècle

Abstract : Through Molière's works, we will focus on how secondary textbooks have decided to represent this author from the nineteenth century until today. It is thus the process of building the school myth of Molière that we try to question. Our study first deals with analysing the place of Molière in successive programs and textbooks in order to determine the relationship between these two main poles of the educational institution as well as the evolution of their contents regarding Molière's works. We will then question the works of Molière as used in textbooks focussing on the exegetical critique : how far has it influenced the construction and the development of the school myth of the author-actor ? These first two steps lead us to think about the evolution of the academic corpus of Molière's works : What about the success of the canonical plays as well as all the comedies that are no longer studied ? Finally, we will focus on the iconographic corpus, that is to say the new « language » that was introduced in textbooks from the second quarter of the twentieth century : has it led to a new reading of Moliere's works?This leads us to the heart of Molière, the first exemple of an academic author
