La cité parodique. Etudes sur les "Acharniens" d'Aristophane.

Abstract : This book consists of a group of studies about Acharnians linked to the question of the kind of unity of the comic poetic composition, and thus the message it delivers or not. The first part of the book is devoted to analysis of sections of the play which, according scholars, have particularly spoken in favour of its discontinuity or inconsistency : the prologue (ll. 1-203), Dicaeopolis visiting Euripides (ll. 383-488), the rhesis (ll. 497-556), the first Lamachus scene (ll. 572-625), the two market scenes following the parabasis (ll. 719-835 and 860-958), the two Lamachus final scenes and the exodus (ll.1069-1142 and 1174-1234). These studies lead to general interpretations of the Acharnians in the second part of the book, around three issues: the political theme of the comedy, the way parodies work, and the picture of the audience and its ability given within the play.
