Orlando, Florida, may be one of the best places to discuss the subject of creation and re-creation of entertainment: the city lives under the shadow of Disney corporation, whose most celebrated re-creations are based on French texts from the 17th century French literature, and in particular Perrault’s fairy tales. From this perspective, whether we speak of ?reworks behind a prince’s castle, a morality tale to entertain children and parents alike, or even a theatrical representation that seems to appear from magic, the three hundred years that separate Orlando and Versailles seem to disappear: the parallels between the 17th and 21st centuries are founded on the same drive to enliven and enlighten one’s world.
Orlando, Floride, peut se considérer très privilégiée d’inspirer une discussion sur la création et la recréation engendrant une récréation : en effet, la ville vit à l’ombre de Disney Corporation, dont les plus célèbres recréations sont basées sur des textes du dix-septième siècle français, et notamment les contes de Charles Perrault. De ce point de vue, que ce soit un feu d’artifice extraordinaire au détour d’un château princier, une histoire moralisante à en régaler enfants comme parents, ou encore une représentation théâtrale qui ressort de la magie, les trois cents ans qui séparent Orlando de Versailles semblent être anéantis devant le même résultat : les parallèles entre les dix-septième et vingt-et-unième siècles se fondent dans la perspective égale d’amuser tout en instruisant son monde. Avec l’aide de notre comité éditorial, nous sommes fiers de présenter ici une collection d’article sur le thème : Créations, recréations, et Amusements au dix-septième siècle : pré-modernité et post-modernité.
