Félicie is a play by the French playwright Pierre de Marivaux. It was published for the first time in the Mercure de France in March 1757.
It portrays the education and discipline of a young girl experiencing passionate love, who was stopped just in time by a fairy before her passion could get out of hand. However, Pierre de Marivaux did not submitted this as a theatrical piece. It was thought that the dialogue in the piece would be less likely to earn aesthetic appreciation and approval than if it were left to literary expression.
