Description Le Sage, Alain-René (1668-1774) À Amsterdam, Zacharie Chatelain, 1722 Beginning in 1684, under the favor of the Abbé de Lyonne, Alain-René Le Sage began translating a number of plays from Spanish. The translated plays were unsuccessful in French theater, but a short original farce, published in 1707, won Le Sage acclaim and began his career as a playwright and novelist. In spite of the popularity of his work, the Théâtre Français was unwelcoming and in 1715, Le Sage began to write for the Théâtre de la Foire. He collaborated in writing nearly one hundred plays. Théâtre de la Foire (fairground theater), was comic opera held in outdoor booths at festival time. It enjoyed great popularity among both the nobility and the commoners of Paris. Much of Le Sage's inspiration came from his keen sense of Parisian society, which he used to advantage in picturesque scenes and adventures.
