Abstract

 

FRIENDSHIP IN CYRANO DE BERGERAC’S  LES ÉTATS ET EMPIRES DE LA LUNE

In his novel Les États et Empires de la Lune (Other Worlds, or the States and the Empires of the Moon), Cyrano de Bergerac describes imaginary visits to New France and to the Moon, and he por­trays in a burlesque way the society of his time. The encounters of the narrator with alien Lunarian cultures lead to his disappointment. The writer questions all the moral standards, ideals and scientific facts available in his century. Friendship is the only value he does not criticise but estimates.
