La figure du satyre au XVIIe siècle

Abstract : In the 17th century, Satyrs are present in scientific treatises, iconography, and literature. This research examines three types of manifestation of these “bawdy, mocking, unbridled and a bit diabolical” (F. Lavocat) hybrid monsters: theoretical reflections on greek satyric drama (what was it, exactly? what purpose did it serve? could it, too, be a source of imitation?); frontispieces (what do those say about the works they ‘illustrate’?); and the creation of their ‘language’ – like them, heteroclite, hybrid, and trangressive – by burlesque authors.
