"La première pièce d'Antoine Houdar de La Motte (1672-1731) ... fut représentée le 13 août 1693, à l'Hôtel de Bourgogne. L'auteur était alors âgé de vingt et un ans. Ce fut un four si complet qu'il poussa Houdar, dit-on, à se retirer à la Trappe. Mais en est-ce vraiment là la raison? C'est ce que nous tentons d'élucider dans l'introduction à la présente édition critique. Pourtant, Les Originaux, qui contient nombre d'évocations du théâtre de Molière et peut donc se considérer comme un hommage au grand comique, se révèle à la lecture fort divertissant, dans la tradition de la Commedia dell'arte, qui a fortement inspiré Molière, explicitement imité et loué avec chaleur et même affection dans Les Originaux. Les personnages et les dialogues des scènes écrites font rire, mais le texte parle aussi à l'imagination dans les scènes à canevas, en appelant le lecteur à imaginer le jeu et les paroles des acteurs et donc à participer à la production de la pièce. La boucle est bouclée, pour ainsi dire, avec la structure et la forme de la pièce de La Motte. Hommage à la fois au grand Poquelin et au genre italien, ce premier effort dramatique de notre auteur a peut-être été traité injustement par l'histoire. Gageons qu'une production contemporaine en révélerait les attraits bien mieux qu'en 1693"--Page 4 of cover
