    Abstract:
    Theater historians regard Alfred de Vigny's "Le More de Venise" as an early part of the romantic revolution against French classicism. Despite the sensation created by the word "mouchoir," an analysis of the play shows that de Vigny's adaptation of Shakespeare's "Othello" reflects the diction and versification, the simplification of character and plot, and the sentimentalism--in a word, the decorum--of traditional French drama.
