Molière 21 focuses on the famous author of French theatre, Molière (1622-1673). This website complements the printed edition of Molière’s oeuvre that was published in Paris in 2010. It offers a variety of material:
- ‘Base de données intertextuelle.’ A database with a large number of texts or text extracts that are related to Molière’s comedies. They come from the 17th century and are written by a variety of authors. They can be browsed by author, title, genre, and subject. They are shown in modern edition, and accompanied by annotations.
- ‘Visualisation des variantes textuelles.’ A visualization tool that makes it possible to compare different versions of Molière’s texts. Texts are shown in modern edition.
- ‘Ressources.’ Diverse texts – both primary and secondary – can be found here. This also includes a large collection of related texts from the 17th century. Some of them are shown on this website (in modern edition), while for others a link is available that leads to a digitized version on another website.
Basic search in the entire collection is possible.
