Instructor: Marie-Pierre Wolfe

Required: Edito B1 or equiv.

Description: Contes de fées: Les motifs des contes merveilleux (ou contes de fées) sont extrêmement anciens. Les archétypes se sont transmis oralement depuis la préhistoire. Il y avait des “contes merveilleux” en Grèce classique et à Rome.

Le genre se diffuse en France au XVII siècle. Les textes sont écrits par des femmes “savantes” de la haute-bourgeoisie (les précieuses ridicules de Molière) qui trouvent dans les Salons mondains une forme d’émancipation. Racontés oralement à l’origine, les contes deviennent si populaires qu’on les met sur papier. Charles Perrault écrit “Les Contes de ma mère l’oye” Chaque conte accompagné d’une morale.

Pendant les cinq dernières semaines de la session d’été 2021, nous lirons chaque semaine
un des contes les moins connus de Charles Perrault et nous étudierons la psychanalyse
de ces contes de fées, et leurs réinterprétation contemporaines: “La barbe bleue”, “les fées”, “Peau d' ne”, “Riquet à la houppe”, “La belle au bois dormant''.
