De Marivaux, on ne voit souvent qu'un aspect, une formule dont il reste la victime. On ne le trouve pas sérieux. Il passe de la malice à la tendresse, de l'esprit à l'émotion, des valets aux princes, des cœurs innocents aux vieilles débauchées. Pourtant, analyste du cœur, moraliste, peintre des milieux les plus variés, Marivaux sait nous toucher par une sensibilité qui ose prendre une forme plus rare -- qui n'avoue pas son nom ou semble l'ignorer. Son théâtre consiste à faire surgir et à rendre lumineux ce qui se cache sous la routine et les convenances. Marivaux est un inlassable inventeur d'épreuves. On pourrait fort bien voir en lui quelque suprême manipulateur. Marivaux explore les zones indistinctes entre le rêve et la réalité, les instants de théâtre dans le théâtre et ceux où plus personne ne sait très bien si tel personnage fait semblant ou non. Proche de Pirandello, qui a construit son oeuvre sur la proclamation du triomphe du théâtre sur la vie et du caractère universel du masque, Marivaux, dramaturge, reste, encore aujourd'hui, à découvrir. -- Description from http://livre.fnac.com (Jan. 20, 2012)

What will become of us? Four people, the sole survivors of a shipwreck, crawl out of the sea. Two of them are masters, and two of them are servants; and all four are about to discover what life feels like when the boot is on the other foot. Marivaux's potent mix of laughter, emotion and theatrical game-playing makes him one of the most surprising and most modern of all classic playwrights. Neil Bartlett has adapted this brilliant comedy of role-swapping and redemption, which premiered at the Lyric Hammersmith in April 2002

26 editions published between 1784 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What if four children had been kept locked away in darkness and complete isolation since birth? What if, tonight, they were to be released? How would bodies and minds reared in darkness respond to the first words, the first lies, the first kisses? What if you got to watch? Cruel, erotic and elegant by turn, The Dispute is rightly regarded as one of Marivaux's masterpieces
