L’homme, ce drôle d’oiseau (et inversement) dans L’Autre monde de Cyrano de Bergerac

Abstract : Birds are not the least characters of the Other World of Cyrano de Bergerac. The bird is initially the support and the model of the narrator’s dreams of take-off, - a narrator anxious to discover a universe whose recent scientific assumptions made a renewed object of curiosity, and to escape this imperfect world. It is then the living being whose “language” approaches more of the human language, and of the music: then can one really make the difference between the man and the bird, from this point of view? Isn't there between them a form of communication (emotional more than rational)? It is finally one of these wild animals which men like to put out of cage (and to eat, without thinking of the consequences of this oppressive treatment towards the animals, while at the same time they both belong on the same basis, with the same needs and the same rights, with Nature. Cyrano as an “ecologist”? Why not?
