DESIRES OF EXCESS
A TRAGEDY OF RELIGIOUS PASSION WHOSE ICONOCLASTIC VIOLENCE IS AS ANXIOUS AS IT IS FASCINATING!


A splendid tragedy by Corneille in which we see magnificent struggles between the desire of a lover and the desire of a martyr, and between the taste for life and the attraction of death. Today, these struggles can help us approach this religious passion that we makes us fearful and fascinated. The desire for excess, for death, where young people discover themselves to be capable of terrifying acts against the forces of love, even sacrifice. The desire for excess, for the shattering of “idols” that alienate far more than they liberate.
We’re now in a time of darkness, and here and there, exposed to terror. Corneille in Polyeucte approaches an abyss.
The poet is always ahead of us, and the tragedy is so rich that no unequivocal response is satisfying enough. But, the staging of this “mystery” can help us better understand this terrifying passion!
