Le Faiseur

L'oeuvre romanesque de Balzac est si écrasante qu'elle en fait presque oublier qu'il a voulu aussi
s'imposer comme dramaturge. Dans ce domaine, Le Faiseur, qui date de l. a. fin de sa vie, est à coup
sûr sa meilleure réussite. l. a. pièce met en scène un spéculateur génial qui, pour attraper les gogos, fait preuve d'une créativité intarissable dans les combinaisons financières les plus douteuses. Ce « saltimbanque de l. a. Bourse », nommé Mercadet, pratique avant l'heure et avec un artwork
consommé ce que Wall road nomme aujourd'hui les junk bonds, ces « emprunts
pourris » si familiers à Bernard Madoff. ..
Analyse au vitriol des dérives entraînées par un régime affairiste, l. a. monarchie de Juillet, Le
Faiseur est aussi le portrait d'un filou à l'énergie sans limites, qu'au-delà de toute condamnation
morale Balzac ne peut s'empêcher de considérer avec une certaine connivence : le romancier et
son personnage n'ont-ils pas en commun d'appartenir tous deux à los angeles grande famille des
fabulateurs ? .. .
