Lebrun-Pindare, ou l’Orphée immobile

Abstract : How is it possible, after having sung the praises of king and nobles, to then ardently celebrate the fall of the monarchy and the victory of republican values without contradicting oneself? This article explores the career of Écouchard-Lebrun, ranging from the comfortable salons of the Prince de Conti to the benches of the Institut national. Studying this productive poet and his continued success sheds much light on artistic solidarity and sociability during the reconstruction of the République des lettres during the Revolution, Consulate, and Empire. It also allows us to examine from a post-Revolutionary (or what was hoped to be post-Revolutionary) perspective the memory and reputation of those artists politically engaged in the Revolutionary process.
