    . II - Giraudoux dans la guerre : la Seconde Guerre mondiale
  • Author: Bombard (Françoise)
  • Abstract: In Giraudoux’s theater, war has a concrete presence: the characters bring to mind soldiers, warriors, armies, destruction, and exactions. Macabre realism ratifies the return of the trauma of 1914–1918. Derision banishes epic or poetic visions of war. The allegories of war and peace, characters on the stage, embody the debates that stir humans up. Aestheticization serves less to embellish the war than to evade an unbearable reality.
