Quand la malédiction sauve la ville : structure d'un paradoxe.

Abstract : The author wants to show that Eteocles in Seven Against Thebes is conscious of the political role of the curse as much as its role in the family fate. Eteocles is aware that the curse will paradoxically save the city, that is why he subordinates his political choices to its accomplishment, but he remains a political leader as much as the cursed brother through the whole drama. The author bases her arguments on the readings of three passages, ll. 69-77, 573-588 and 617-618.
