Résumé

The research in textual genetics done in the Institut des Textes et Manuscrits Modernes permits the reconstruction, word after word, of the progression of the writer ' s creative thought.
The genetic criticism is here applied to the first lines of a Herodias ' s autograph document, written by Flaubert in 1876-1877.
