Romain Lancrey-Javal's Le Langage dramatique de «La Reine morte» (Littératures PDF

By Romain Lancrey-Javal

On reproche à Montherlant d'avoir manqué son life et son oeuvre, d'avoir mis trop de théâtre dans sa vie, et trop peu de vie dans son théâtre. A los angeles faveur d'un timide retour en grâce dans les programmes d'enseignement, s'amorce peut-être une réhabilitation, non d'un idéologue que Montherlant n'a jamais voulu être, mais d'un grand écrivain injustement décrié aujourd'hui. « Copyright Electre »

By Dión de Prusa,Gonzalo Del Cerro Calderón,Carlos García Gual

El orador y filósofo griego Dión de Prusa (o Crisóstomo) predicó una doctrina de moderación y contentamiento en sus viajes por toda Grecia y Asia Menor.
Filóstrato incluye a Dión de Prusa (también llamado Dión Crisóstomo, «boca de oro») en el movimiento de los angeles sofística, aunque aclara que por su personalidad y por su obra rebasa las categorías angostas. En efecto, este orador, filósofo e historiador griego del siglo I d.C., nacido en los angeles pequeña ciudad de Prusa, en l. a. provincia romana de Bitinia (noroeste de los angeles genuine Turquía), pronunció discursos en varias situaciones de las que atraían a los sofistas, y algunas de sus ochenta piezas oratorias conservadas son inequívocamente de lucimiento y exhibición retórica, sobre asuntos triviales ajenos a las grandes cuestiones del pensamiento. Incluso uno de sus discursos, Contra los filósofos, justifica l. a. expulsión de los filósofos de Roma e insta al destierro de los seguidores de Sócrates y Zenón. Sin embargo, otra vertiente de sus discursos responde a los planteamientos de las filosofías cínica y estoica concernientes a los angeles ética y, en basic, al modo de vivir: una sencillez integrada en los angeles naturaleza. También abordó temas de política. En esta faceta seria de su producción trató temas como los angeles esclavitud y l. a. libertad, el vicio y l. a. virtud, l. a. libertad, los angeles esclavitud, l. a. riqueza, l. a. avaricia, los angeles guerra, las hostilidad y los angeles paz, el buen gobierno y otras cuestiones morales.
El emperador Domiciano le expulsó de Roma (donde residió una temporada) y de Italia a raíz de una relación con conspiradores, lo que propició que Dión viajara por el Imperio, con una modestia y una pobreza extremas. El nuevo emperador, Nerva, revocó el castigo, y Dión trabó amistad con el sucesor de éste, Trajano, al que dirigió más de un discurso encomiástico, y quien se cube que le llevó en su carro en su triunfo dacio. Dión pasó los últimos años de su vida en su Prusa natal, donde participó activamente en l. a. política.
