What can Eugène Ionesco’s selection and way of reading reveal about his drama conceptions? Ionesco reader profile interests us because it makes the point to the consideration about author’s (self) representation that sees himself in other’s works: Flaubert by l’Éducation sentimentale, for example, is a confessed influence because of the derision and the “satire of the received ideas”, according to the author’s words, that the writer uses in the novel construction. On the other side, Antonin Artaud is rarely mentioned in Notes et contre-notes, even if when we read le Théâtre et son double the common points that guide both intellectuals of modern drama are so expressive. In his place, we find some writers less known of Romanian literature, like Ion Luca Caragiale, updated in a portrait that Ionesco makes of him in Notes and presented as “the biggest of the unknown drama authors”. I propose analyze the texts of Notes et contre-notes, to verify the confessed, forgotten and invented influences by Eugène Ionesco.
