|Abstract:||The aim of this dissertation is to re-situate the marquis de Sade's plays in the general context of the theatrical practices in Eighteenth Century France and to reconstitute the author's dramatic writing process through a study of intertextuality of each of his plays. The genetic approach used here gives further insight into Sade's writing techniques; indeed in these plays, the author is constantly re-writing himself as well as his predecessors and contemporaries. The analysis brings to light a very high degree of coherence between the author's theater, the remainder of his writings and eighteenth century French literature.
Furthermore, the dissertation contributes to developing a better knowledge of these hitherto neglected and unknown plays through careful scrutiny of Sade's entire correspondence and the examination of a number of unpublished documents. This process also enabled us to date more precisely a large majority of those works.
