really enjoyed this collection although the themes are a little repetitive, good introduction and supporting notes providing historical context. Humorous stuff.

I bought this book for my French A level so it is not my usual reading material! Hopefully it will help me with my studies!

Format: Paperback
This is a superb play which make slight of human folly and hypocrisy and holds some relevance today. It is written in the 17th century this is regarded as Molière's best work. The play is about a man who passes judgment on the hypocrisy of the other protagonists without seeing his folly and inconsistency of judgement.

The 1992 edition, of which I am writing, is the 1876 Henri van Laun translation and has a very basic introduction and no notes to text.
