Le Petit-Maître corrigé
Le Petit-Maître corrigé is a three-act romantic comedy by French playwright Marivaux. It was first performed on November 6, 1734, by the Comédie-Française in Paris, then located rue des Fossés-Saint-Germain-des-Près.This play is one of the rare plays of Marivaux not performed by the Comédie Italienne. The first representation was catastrophic, seemingly because Marivaux had enemies like Voltaire and Crebillon, and also because the play has a very violent subtext against the 18th century aristocracy.
