Recent Comments "Hernani"

1830 Victor Hugo’s play, Hernani, caused a storm of controversy upon its first performance in Paris because of its new romantic themes and attitudes.But Hernani isn’t only the text of disquisitions on Romanticism. First of all, it’s a great drama ; it’s Victor Hugo’s unforgetable rhymes.In his preface to Hernani, Victor Hugo explains that he wants to endow his country with one more freedom: that of art, that of intelligence.“Young men”, Hugo writes, “let’s have good courage! So [...]

I can't read in French. A terrible pity, since my favorite book (Les Misérables) was written in French. And because I love that book so much, I've tried to read as much as possible written by M. Hugo. Not easy. Hernani in particular was a challenge, since it hasn't been translated much. But it was important to me to read it, because it had been so important both in Hugo's career in for Romanticism in general. Opening night sounds like it must have been very exciting, and fun if you were a Roman [...]

Le drame de Hugo raconte l'histoire de dona Sol dont 3 hommes sont amoureux. L'un de ces derniers est Hernani, banni, ennemi du roi qui a tué son père.Hernani est 1 héros romantique : courageux à l extrême, écrasé par l'image d'un père héroïque qu'il est condamné à venger, un rêveur, jeté malgré lui dans l'action " honteux () qu'on me fait pour haïr, moi qui n'ai su qu'aimer "Un amant exalté et jaloux. Hernani à dona Sol " Moi je brûle près de toi ! Ah quand l'amour jaloux bo [...]

A moving tale of XVIth century plots and passions, but more interesting for the stylistic and literary revolt contained within its playful verse than for any transcendent sense of tragedy.

Chante-moi quelque chant comme parfois le soirTu m'en chantais, avec des pleurs dans ton œil noir.Soyons heureux ! buvons, car la coupe est remplie,Car cette heure est à nous et le reste est folie.Parle-moi ! Ravis-moi. N’est-ce pas qu’il est douxD’aimer et de sentir qu’on vous aime à genoux ?D’être deux? D’être seuls? Et que c’est douce choseDe se parler d’amour, la nuit quand tout repose ?

This is the Hugo play that caused the 1830 theatrical revolution in France! To the barricades!



Hernani is so operatic, I kept imagining huge swelling strings and thunderous timpanis as I read it. Many of the characters' speeches are long passionate arias, and the stylish dialogue is as rapid and rhythmic as recitativo. The whole is a trumpet-blast of human passion, and it is remarkable to see how Hugo transformed the alexandrine. Racine used the French alexandrine as a form of extreme emotional control, parching the language of his characters. Hugo, by contrast, turns it into a flexible, [...]

Bien commençons ! Place au théâtre, à l’amour, au drame et à la stupidité du personnage principal…Tout d’abord, Dona Sol…personnellement je trouve que c’est juste la victime de l’histoire…non mais sérieusement…Conclusion : C’est une excellente pièce de théâtre. Je suis sérieuse. Tous les personnages ont un caractère concrets et se reconnaissent entre mille. Je dois bien avouer d’Hernani, lui, m’a véritablement agacée. Je suis prise de pitié pour Dona Sol. J [...]

Dona Sol est aimée de trois hommes : un vieillard, un roi et un proscrit. Le Roi échoué à enlever Dona et doit sa vie au bandit Hernani, bien qu'il se soit promis d venger son père. Le vieillard préfère laisser le roi prendre en otage Dona plutôt que de livrer Hernani qui a trouvé refuge chez le vieillard. Devenu Charles Quint, le roi pardonne à ses ennemis, Hernani révèle sa véritable identité de grand d'Espagne mais ne pourra s'aimer avec Dona : comme il l'a promis au vieillard, [...]

La pièce n'échappe pas à quelques moments un peu ridicules (la façon dont est dépeint Charles Quint prête à sourire), mais globalement Hernani tient la route et, même si l'on devine quelle en sera l'issue et même si les ficelles sont bien grosses, c'est une lecture agréable.Avec le recul du temps et l'évolution des mœurs et de la sensibilité artistique, on a du mal à saisir pourquoi cette œuvre avait déclenché pareille controverse en 1830, si ce n'est l'usage de la langue, très [...]

I read this in french, and the only reason this book gets three stars from me is the writing. The writing is completely amazing and blew me away. I was just dreaming my way throug the book, enthralled in the writing and not really paying attention to the story.but thinking back the story was quite plain. A writing and the story makes up a book. And the only part where this book picked up was the writing. I know this book came out when stories like these were completely unheard of. But from my po [...]

I really liked this one because somehow it was interesting. There was a great diversity of characters and every one of them was well developed for a play. The writing style though in verse fitted the play really well. Although a little bit predictible at times, there was some twists and turns to make the plot interesting. Plus, the predictability of this play doesn't prejudice the story it even helps focusing on the form of the play.I was pleasantly surprised ! I bow my hat to Victor Hugo for th [...]

Opera lovers often wonder why the plots are so dreadful and the characters are so improbable. The reason is that the Victor Hugo was one of the dominating figures of Nineteenth Century literature. The result has been operas with ghastly librettos like Hernani. Read this play to see the root of the problem.Good plays like Beaumarchais' Marriage of Figaro and Dumas' Dame aux Camélias (a.k.a Traviata) produced great operas. In between Beaumarchais and Dumas, the librettos were often dreadful.

Hernani is great! Wonderful verses, a beautiful story with some unexpected twists and turns. Knowing that it's a tragedy you are prepared for the ending, though there are some quite Romeo and Juliette elements in it, which makes you think "seen this already". Still a great read, I'm glad I have the book as just the beautiful phrasing and word games Hugo uses are the reason enough to read the play.

Sometimes, I have to simply check a book off on as read.Hernani might be an interesting piece to study if only from a historical standpoint: it was positive radicalism on stage back in 1830, all because the king figure talked of hiding in cabinets. But I had absolutely no feelings whatsoever while reading this. Like, nothing. Imagine if Shakespeare evoked nothing in his audience?But maybe it's just difficult to take rhyming alexandrines seriously.

exquisitely written, classic example of the melodrama at its height on the French stage. if you want drama, this is your play. hugo is daring and defiant; this is the anti-classicism, anti-conservatism play of Bohemians and commoners. cheers, romantics!

j'aime la fin tragique inexpectable de cette piece mais aussi j'adore sa poesie amoureuse qui manifeste le genie d'Hugo.c'est une piece d'esprit revolutionnaire qui a inaugre le Remantisme et qui m'a bcp touche by the way :D j'ai un examen sur hernani samedi prochain .wish me luck

If nothing else, I like it because it gave us an excellent Verdi opera. But I like the text on its own. It's a wonderful blending or romantic and political rivalries. It also highlights the value of duty even over one's own pleasure

Very Shakespearean feel to the story line, characters and motives. As the happy ending arrives, Hugo let loose a fatal plot twist. The story line follows great swings as several characters change loyalties and motives in a split-second.

Class/Student work.

Una corta obra, dinámica y relativamente intensa, que se lee con apetito.

Très vite lu, mais je ne retrouve pas le plaisir de lire Hugo. pas mon favori, donc.

I have a Danish translation, and it is simply delightful to read, as the rhythm has been excellently preserved.

A fairly quick and easy read. The end reminded me of Romeo and Juliet.

J'ai préféré Ruy Blas mais Hernani reste une pièce que j'ai beaucoup aimée !

Le premier live en Français qui sait me toucher. Remarquable. Vraiment bien écrit et très émouvent.
