9780140447309: The Misanthrope and Other Plays:

In the seventeenth century, Molière raised comedy to the pitch of great art and, three centuries later, his plays are still a source of delight. He created a new synthesis from the major comic traditions at his disposal. This collection demonstrates the range of Molière's comic vision, his ability to move between the broad and basic ploys of farce to the more subtle and sophisticated level of high comedy. The Misanthrope appears along with Such Preposterously Precious Ladies, Tartuffe, A Doctor Despite Himself, The Would-Be Gentleman, and Those Learned Ladies.

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.
