Description-
  • Six satires by Molière, France's original master of comedies, translated by Richard Wilbur: The Bungler, The Imaginary Cuckold, The School for Husbands, The School for Wives, Tartuffe and The Misanthrope.

    The Bungler: A clever valet tries to help his master win the girl of his dreams, only to find that he is a monumental dunce who ruins every single intricate scheme. Stars Richard Easton.

    The Imaginary Cuckold: An enraged husband imagines his wife is unfaithful, but is reluctant to defend his honor in this grand farce of hysterical coincidences.

    School for Husbands: Sganarelle, a tyrannical old buffoon of a husband-to-be, seeks to isolate his young ward, while unwittingly carrying her messages of devotion to her lover.

    The School for Wives: In this biting comedy of errors, the hapless Arnolphe is undone by his own double dealing and double standards.

    Tartuffe: In this superb satire of hypocrisies in the Catholic Church a pious fraud tries to get title to his friend's estate by sending him to jail. Stars Brian Bedford.

    The Misanthrope: One man's blunt honesty shatters the delicate web of manners in French salons. Often considered Molière's Hamlet.

About the Author-
  • Molière (1622 – 1673), born Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, wrote some of the most durable and penetrating satires of all time. He is today considered as the great master of French comedy, and was hugely popular, and feared by some, for his ceaseless attacks on hypocrisy, snobbery and brutish behavior.
