L'homme sans nom et le roi sans couronne : étude des premiers drames de Dumas père (1827-1835)

Abstract : The thesis proposes to reactualize the theatrical question at Dumas father, by studying his first dramas which put in scene great royal figures of history, but also of the ambitious anonymities fascinated by the capacity: the reading of the press of the age reveals how much the reception dramas was related to the political tensions. The first part set the dramas of Dumas in a generic context and study the reception, the second part, entitled “ the representation of power” locates and defines the representation of action, space and time of power, looking at especially the recurring roles of the ambitious, illegitimate son who searches his identity, and roles of the declining sovereign. The third part, entitled “power of the learned man: Dumas historian”, try to show that the figure of the man without name caught up with by its past is also a metaphor of the man ignorant of history. The result is a promotion of the role of learned man: the astrologer in the dramas, source of these fantastic characters so famous that are Althotas, Cagliostro? Dumas pleads thus for the popularization of the historical knowledge.
