Abstract : Born in 1630 from the Spanish monk Tirso de Molinas quill, the character of Don Juan has never stopped inspiring writers to the point of becoming a true literary myth. Nowadays, one could not evoke it without mentioning a few masterpieces such as Dom Juan by Molire or the opera Don Giovanni by Mozart. Even if it is hard to find in the 20th century, rewritings of the mythical scenario that can vie with these illustrious names, it is however undeniable that it remains very productive. France itself gives numerous proves to this vitality. Indeed, the story of Don Juan keeps on inspiring authors. It even seems to conquer new literary genres: confined for a long time to theatre only, it is however in the domain of fiction that the mythical hero experiences nowadays his most original uses.But these literary rewritings are completed and enriched in the 20th century by two essential contributions. Firstly reviews have multiplied the different views on the myth and have maintained fertile conversations with fictional works. The birth in the literary world of this reflexive dimension considerably transforms the vision shared on this Don Juan fable. Secondly, the cinema embraces the myth and offers new reading propositions. However this productivity should not overshadow this fact: the myth has been adapted to our times. It has undergone many transformations. Are they the proof of the myths plasticity and the warrant of its survival or, on the contrary, are they steps that might lead to its destruction? At the end of the day, will Don Juan risk to be the victim of the fascination it inspires?

Rsum : N en 1630, sous la plume du moine espagnol Tirso de Molina, le personnage de Don Juan na cess dinspirer les auteurs, au point de devenir un vritable mythe littraire. On ne saurait, dsormais, lvoquer sans mentionner quelques uvres majeures, telles que le Dom Juan de Molire ou le Don Giovanni de Mozart. Sil est difficile de trouver, au 20me sicle, des rcritures du scnario mythique susceptibles de rivaliser avec ces illustres noms, il est indniable que ce dernier demeure productif. La France offre, elle seule, des preuves de cette vitalit. En effet, lhistoire de Don Juan continue inspirer les auteurs. Elle semble mme avoir conquis de nouveaux genres littraires : longtemps cantonn au thtre, cest, pourtant, dans le genre romanesque que le hros mythique trouve actuellement ses traitements les plus originaux.Mais ces rcritures littraires sont enrichies, au 20me sicle, par deux apports fondamentaux. La critique, tout dabord, qui multiplie les angles dapproche sur le mythe et entretient, son tour, un dialogue fertile avec les uvres de fiction. Cette dimension rflexive renouvelle considrablement le regard port sur la fable donjuanesque. Le cinma, ensuite, qui, en semparant du mythe, en propose de nouvelles lectures. Cependant, cette productivit ne doit pas occulter un constat : pour sadapter notre poque, le canevas mythique a souffert de nombreuses modifications. Ces dernires sont-elles la preuve de la plasticit du mythe et la garantie de sa survie ou, au contraire, des tapes pouvant aboutir sa dconstruction ? Il importera de se demander, en dfinitive, si Don Juan ne risque pas dtre victime de la fascination quil inspire.
