Excerpt from Le Jeu De L'amour Et Du Hasard
Marivaux's father belonged to an honorable family, originally from Normandy, and one which had occupied judicial positions. He went to Riom, shortly after his son's birth, and then to Li moges, where he was employed in the treasury department. It was unfortunate to drop from the magistracy, la robe, to la finance, but his son's education, although he knew little Latin and less Greek, seems to have been fairly well provided for, as we know that he studied law for a time. He did not, however, follow the profession of a lawyer, but, at the age of eighteen, produced a comedy which gave some indication of future talent. He did not devote himself to literature at this time, but for several years led a pleasant life in Paris in the literary salons of Mme. De Lambert and Mme. De Tencin.

Product Description:

Édition présentée et commentée par Annie Collognat (lycée Victor Hugo, Paris) et Marie-Thérèse Ligot (Université de Paris III) Pour éprouver la fidélité de son fiancé Dorante, Silvia se fait passer pour sa servante Lisette, tandis que Dorante fait de même avec son valet Arlequin. Et voilà l'amour mis à l'épreuve de la méfiance, des préjugés, de la timidité, du moment, toujours retardé, où il faudra se rendre et dire " oui ". Aujourd'hui, rien n'a changé... Le théâtre de Marivaux éclate de vie, de fraîcheur, d'originalité, de gaieté. Nous subissons un enchantement dont le principe nous échappe. Et nous voici entraînés par ces subtils conspirateurs de l'amour, ces duellistes du sentiment dont chaque estocade pourrait être mortelle. Lire avec le texte intégral et la préface présentant l'œuvre et son auteur. Comprendre avec les clés de l'œuvre : 24 pages pour aller à l'essentiel ; 73 pages pour approfondir.

Product Description:

SILVIAMais encore une fois, de quoi vous mêlez-vous, pourquoi répondre de mes sentiments ?
