Jean le Preux dans des almanachs hongrois du 18ème siècle et ses réapparitions de nos jours au théâtre
This essay tackles the 18th century trashy literature sources on János (John) the Warrior and János (John) Háry. These works have been made attractive by the specific symbiosis of the reality with elements of the miraculous. János (John) the Warrior by Sándor Petőfi and János (John) Háry by Zoltán Kodály have been popular from the very beginning and this success is still vivid up to now. It is also important from the point of view of Hungarian-French relations by referring to five literary translations, a number of literaty analyses, as well as theatre performances in the frankophone countries.
