Psyché ou la mondanité mise en scène.

Rollin, S. (2006) 'Psyché ou la mondanité mise en scène.', Papers on French seventeenth century literature., 33 (64). pp. 11-28.


Psyché appears as “society life on stage” because society life serves as a reference value as well as a matrix for this drama. The play praises the beauty of appearances and an ethics of pleasure through archetypal characters whose models are taken from fashionable novels of the seventeenth-century. The society life taste for variety is to be seen in the “making” of a show organised in such a way as to intertwine various arts, and in a style that restores a balance between opposite registers.
