In this work created in 1730, Marivaux tests love in a play of double disguises and a production where actors are simultaneously characters and spectators. The seeming light-weight, amusing characters and the honing of language from noble to peasant-like, serve to heighten both the deep concerns of the characters and a subtle critique of social inequality. Does one dare transgress the expectations of one’s birth? Some are astonished to find themselves attracted to someone of inferior class. Others are filled with wonder and give in to the seduction as they discover that they are able to love outside of the group into which they were born.
“Oh, one’s lot is strange! Neither of these two men is where he belongs.” (I,7)
The characters discover who they themselves really are, and the injustices that surround them. Social order is challenged by a revolutionary truth: “Valour is as good as birthright” (III,8). But no one imagines that it could change. For each of them, dressing-up would be an opportunity to learn to overcome prejudice and not bask in illusion.
“Remember that one is not master of one’s destiny?” (II,5)
