-Jean Racine, dans sa « Seconde Préface » d’Andromaque. 1676
“For there is quite some difference between destroying the foundations of a story and altering a few of its events, which change almost diametrically in all hands that treat them. Thus Achilles, according to most poets, can only be wounded in the heel, regardless that Homer has him wounded in the arm and does not believe him to be invulnerable in any part of his body… And it’s in reference to some controversy of this nature that an ancient commentator of Sophocles remarks very fittingly, “that one mustn’t amuse oneself by ridiculing poets for some changes they may make in the story, but one must apply oneself to considering the excellent use they have made of those changes, and the ingenious manner in which they have known well enough to accommodate the story to their subject.””
