    One thought on “Pelléas et Mélisande”

    1. What am I?Reading Maeterlinck's play feels like engaging in a beautiful, magical, and mysterious riddle.What am I? A classic play? Yes, maybe. I do have five acts, a plot, characters and a deadly end, so I guess I could be tragedy. My content suggests it: old man marries young woman, who falls in love with his younger brother. Discovery leads to death. But somehow I lack the action of a classic drama. There is no determination, time is floating, settings change, my characters do not fully unders [...]

    2. Maeterlinck was an important part of the Symbolist movement in literature and it is important to realize that when reading this play. Here is a brief synopsis of Symbolism from :"Symbolists believed that art should represent absolute truths that could only be described indirectly. Thus, they wrote in a very metaphorical and suggestive manner, endowing particular images or objects with symbolic meaning."Thus, do not expect that the characters and action of the play will behave in a realistic or n [...]

    3. This play, one of his best, brought Maeterlinck to international fame. There is much different about Maeterlinck’s poetry and drama. Heavy in symbolism, rich in dialogue, there is always a tension in his work. Maeterlinck’s dialogue makes great use of repetition. This can be both criticized and studied – criticized for its simplicity and studied for the impact it has on the play. The repetition adds a tense, nervous feel. “When once misfortune enters a house, silence is in vain.” That [...]

    4. J'ai eu un peu de mal à comprendre l'histoire de cette pièce et où Maeterlinck voulait en venir. L'intrigue est assez simple, mais comme souvent avec les œuvres symbolistes, j'ai préféré délaisser le sens à rechercher et me laisser charmer par la musicalité des mots, la beauté des images. J'ai particulièrement aimé le jeu entre clarté et ombre, lumière et obscurité qui traverse toute l’œuvre. Le style de Maeterlinck est absolument magnifique, savoureux: un véritable délice e [...]

    5. nwhytevejournal/2872453mlThis is one of Maeterlinck's earliest plays, first performed in 1893, and must have contributed richly to his reputation. The title of the play makes it easy to guess the plot. Although Golaud falls in love with Mélisande in the second scene and marries her, in fact she and his brother Pelléas end up fatally attracted to each other, and Golaud kills them both when he finds out. (Actually it's not clear if the wound or childbirth is the cause of Mélisande's death, but [...]

    6. Qui est Mélisande? Un enfant? Un changeling? Une des nymphes des eaux? Une princesse? Une reine? Une fée? Une folle? Mélusine? Un succube? On peut dire qu'elle est tout et rien au même temps

    7. i enjoyed reading this but i think it had more to do with an easy style (donc, not having to check a french dictionary every three words) than the actual play. still, v excited to have finally finished a piece en français, it's about time!

    8. Побольше мрачности в сюжет пьес, чтобы зритель ёрзал на стуле и с нетерпением ждал развязки. Морис Метерлинк предпочитал наполнять свои произведения истинной драматичной событийностью. Для того он вёл внимающего через бурелом страстей, позволял обходить острые углы и ст [...]

    9. Pelleas and Melisande is the first canon shot in the war of the avant-garde against the tediousness of realism and naturalism. Mélisande is a water spirit from traditional French Folklore who is discovered next to a pool of water by Prince Golaud who promptly resolves to marry her. Melisande agrees but subsequently falls in lover with Golaud's brother Pelleas. When Golaud learns of the truth he kills his brother Pelleas and mortally wounds Melisande who survives long enough to give birth to a d [...]

    10. There is some good ideas, but they are underdeveloped. For example, the story between Pellas and Melisande could be epically romantic, but nothing is "shown in stage". Nothing is really explained.The characters are also underdeveloped and thus uninteresting. When Melisande is first introduced, she is mysterious and you wonder where she came from. The reader then thinks the mystery will be unfold, but nothing - and I really mean nothing - is told. The result is that the character is just incohere [...]

    11. I saw an opera Pelleas and Melisanda by Claude Debussy on a libretto by Maeterlink. Decadence. It is very good to see mood in which people lived before WWI. It seems that they were very unhappy.
