9780140440898: The Misanthrope and Other Plays (Penguin Classics) The Misanthrope - The Sicilian or Love the Painter - Tartuffe or The Imposter - Doctor in Spite of Himself - The Imaginary Invalid

The Misanthrope, Moliere's richly sophisticated comic drama is accompanied in this volume by The Would-be Gentleman, another tale of a dangerously deluded and obsessive hero. Tartuffe dares to take on the subject of religious hypocrisy. Also included are Such Foolish Affected Ladies and Those Learned Ladies, both newly translated for this edition. Finally, The Doctor Despite Himself is a hilarious example of Moliere's long-standing vendetta against the medical profession.

Book Description:

The Misanthrope, translated by Martin Crimp, is a blistering contemporary version of Molière's Le Misanthrope, a fierce argument between conformity, manners, and destructive truth-telling.
