This study considers a neglected aspect of the work of Honoré de Balzac: his theatrical production. The study does not take into account the sketches (more than one hundred), left incomplete by the writer, but analyzes a corpus of seven pièces staged in Paris. The study is particularly concerned with the specificities of the writing and the dramatic representation, but also the particular use of theatrical language by the writer. It is a pluralistic and minute reading also tending to show that Balzac’s theatre, despite its weakness, perfectly fits into the famous writer’s conception of art and literature and hence constitutes an essential part of his work.
