    Abstract

    This article focuses on notions of ‘intermediality’, examining the ways in which Marivaux’s novel La Vie de Marianne (1731-42) has been pictured through time in the light of this concept. Focusing on a series of episodes involving Marianne and her putative benefactor M. de Climal, I explore the relationship between text and image in different sets of illustrations for the novel, and in the film adaptation Marianne directed by Benoît Jacquot (1995). Not only do these different transpositions suggest complex forms of reception of Marivaux’s text, but in their anticipation of and engagement with other media (theatre, painting, illustration, cinema), they also provide a suggestive and rich interrogation of the conditions of theatricality and of what it means to become a ‘spectacle’.
