Exploring documents of Illusions perdues, especially that of the second episode, the present study attempts to elucidate the singularity of Balzac's writing process. The first part of this investigation presents the chronology of the trilogy's creation, which reveals a particular creating rhythm. Then, a genetic reading of Un Grand homme de province à Paris, which reposes on a complete transcription of its genetic documents, follows the curve of Balzac's writing process. This survey shows two simultaneous operations (composition of the next part and revision of the written segments), constituting a complex writing process, which attempts to intensify the installed fictional elements, and to mask the distortions at once. This system realizes round-movement between revision and rewriting, allows Balzac to get a particular dynamics in a dialogue between possibilities of rereading and rewriting.
