About the Author:

1606 - 1684. Avocat, il debute au theatre par des comedies ("Melite, " 1629; "la Galerie du Palais, " 1632-1633; "la Place Royale, " 1633-1634; "l'Illusion comique, " 1635-1636) et devient celebre avec une tragi-comedie, "le Cid" (1637), qui provoque une querelle litteraire. Sensible aux critiques, il se consacre alors a la tragedie -reguliere- ("Horace, " 1640; "Cinna, " 1642; "Polyeucte, " 1643), sans abandonner la comedie a la mode espagnole ("le Menteur, " 1643; "Don Sanche d'Aragon, " 1650) et les divertissements de cour ("Andromede, " 1650). Evoluant vers une utilisation systematique du pathetique et des intrigues plus complexes ("la Mort de Pompee, " 1643; "Rodogune, " 1644-1645; "Nicomede, " 1651), il connait avec "Pertharite" (1651) un echec qui l'eloigne du theatre pendant sept ans. Il traduit en vers l'"Imitation de Jesus-Christ" (1651-1656) et s'occupe de l'edition de son theatre, dont il definit les principes dans les "Examens" de ses pieces et trois "Discours" (1660). Revenu a la scene ("Oedipe, " 1659; "Sertorius, " 1662; "Sophonisbe, " 1663; "Attila, " 1667), il voit le public lui preferer Racine ("Tite et Berenice, " 1670). Corneille peint des heros -genereux- pour qui l'honneur et la gloire meritent tous les sacrifices. Le drame cornelien atteint le -sublime-, mais refuse le -tragique-, puisqu'il est le fait d'etres libres qui decident toujours de leur destin. (Academie francaise.)
