The three plays presented in this volume and their various adjoining texts, ranging from the lengthy ‘Notes’ on Le Triumvirat to prefaces, avertissements and avis, all testify to Voltaire’s continuing preoccupation with the uses and abuses of political authority, for good (as in Charlot) and evil (as in Le Triumvirat and its accompanying essays, as well as, more ambiguously, in Les Scythes).
