La parodie du "Télèphe", entre les "Acharniens" et les "Thesmophories". L'échec du Parent.

Abstract : The parody of Telephus within the Thesmophories imitates the one of the Acharnians. In his defence of Euripides, the Parent uses the same Telephus' argumentation as the one used by the protagonist actor of the Acharnians in his defence of Aristophanes.This re–using is part of the Thesmophories' aesthetic project, consisting in setting up an analogy between Euripides theater effects and Aristophanes comedy effects, through the rewriting of the Acharnians. The Parent's failure echoes to the Acharnians' protagonist success, and throws light, in a comic way, on the intrinsic limits of Euripidean realism.
