Twelve days afterwards Marivaux followed Racine to the grave.
Be it mine to read endless romances of Marivaux and Crébillon.
Of the others I said only that they are "romances of adventure, occupying a middle place between those of Lesage and Marivaux."
Lesage was not, like Marivaux, a professed and shameless "unfinisher," but he took a great deal of time to finish his work.
Besides, I am not particularly in love with Marivaux——What are you laughing at, doctor?
It is doubtful whether there is much, if indeed there is any, of this slur in Marivaux's title.
The question is whether Marivaux has, in her, created a live girl, and to what extent he has mastered the details of his creation.
But if by Mr. Bennett's standards we are to give Marivaux his due, what is there left to say about Shakespeare?
No one comprehended Molire better; no one knew how to interpret more naturally the spirit of Marivaux.
Marivaux had a particular fancy for it: with the result that he left not a little of his work unfinished.
