Les discours de Robespierre vus par l'historiographie romantique : de la parole au mythe

Abstract : The seen speeches of Maximilien Robespierre by the romantic historiography constitute a remarkable way of collecting the process of mythical construction around the face of the Incorruptible. Of the word in the myth, the romantic verb transfigures one of most remarkable and noticed speaker of the Revolution: messiah or plague, apostle or tyrant, his entry in the power does not leave the marble historians. Through the speeches of Robespierre, it is the work of the Revolution on the march that and here judged: it is the policy of Terror, it is the domination mountain dweller in the Convention, the shadow of the trial of Danton... Constituent Myth, Maximilien's word is just like the revolutionary fresco: brilliant, violent, justifiable, dark, enlightened even terrible. She haunts the collective imagination, by producing here or there the dismay, the passion, the condolence, the indignation and the opposition. It is a historiographical dialogue more the centuries, more the individualities and the generations where the heirs of the Revolution make their right of inventory.
