La Fausse Suivante; L'Ecole des mères; La Mère confidente by Marivaux

By Marivaux

Pour vaincre le mal, faites-vous plus méchant que lui. L'homme est un loup pour l. a. femme. Derrière le sentiment cherchez l'intérêt, derrière les mots le calcul. A moins qu'aux goals parentales et aux sombres raisons d'argent l'ingénuité, les tendres rêveries du coeur, l'aspiration à un monde plus doux et plus confiant ne fassent entendre raison... Telle est l. a. trajectoire parcourue par le théâtre des Lumières et dont Marivaux touche ici les deux extrêmes : los angeles comique noirceur d'une société où, une fois les masques tombés, los angeles morale est mise en de cruels embarras ; le mirage exquis de l. a. vertu, du rire et du sentiment réconciliés.
