9780156881807: Tartuffe

Jean Baptiste Poquelin, better known by his stage name of Moliere, stands without a rival at the head of French comedy. His many great plays include "The School for Husbands" and "The School for Wives," "The Misanthrope" and "The Hypocrite" (Tartuffe), "The Miser" and "The Hypochondriac," "The Learned Ladies," "The Doctor in Spite of Himself," "The Citizen Turned Gentleman," and many others, in which he exposed mercilessly one after another the vices and foibles of the day. His characteristic qualities are nowhere better exhibited than in "Tartuffe." Compared with such characterization as Shakespeare's, Moliere's method of portraying life may seem to be lacking in complexity; but it is precisely the simplicity with which creations like Tartuffe embody the weakness or vice they represent that has given them their place as universally recognized types of human nature.

Product Description:

One of Moliere's most frequently performed plays, "Tartuffe" has been skillfully rendered into English in brilliant rhymed couplets by Richard Wilbur, who won a share of the Bollingen Translation Prize for his much-acclaimed translation of this satiric turn on religious hypocrisy.

About the Author:

Jean-Baptiste Poquelin Molière (1622-73), the French actor-manager and dramatist, was one of the theatre's greatest comic classics. Inspired by traditions of French farce and the 'commedia dell'arte', he courted controversy with his satiric commentaries on the society of his time and on eternal human foibles, but was saved by the patronage of the 'Sun King' Louis XIV. Christopher Campbell read English and French at St Edmund Hall, Oxford. He is the Literary Manager at the Royal Court Theatre. Christopher has worked as an actor in Canada, France and Belgium, as well as here in the UK.
