More About Moliere
Moliere was the stage name of Jean-Baptiste Poquelin (1622-1673). His plays achieved great success, especially his masterpiece, The Misanthrope, and elicited enormous controversy with their religious irreverence. Donald M. Frame was Moore Professor of French at Columbia University and an acclaimed scholar and translator of French literature. Among his notable works of translation are "The Complete Essays of Montaigne, " "The Complete Works of Rabelais," and the Signet Classics "Tartuffe and Other Plays, "and" Candide, Zadig, and Selected Stories." Virginia Scott is Professor Emerita in the Department of Theater of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. She is the author of "Moliere: A Theatrical Life, The Commedia Dell Arte in Paris, "and "Performance, Poetry and Politics on the Queen s Day: Catherine de Medici and Pierre de Ronsard at Fontainebleau "(with Sara Sturm-Maddox). Since 1994, Charles Newell has been Artistic Director of Chicago s Court Theatre, where he has directed more than fifty productions. He has also directed at Goodman Theatre, Guthrie Theater, Arena Stage, the Acting Company, Glimmerglass Festival, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Opera Theatre of St. Louis, and Chicago Opera Theatre.

C'est bon! Mar 10, 2006
this book was exactly what I needed for my french class. All in French, and the supplemental materials were very helpful and easy to understand, as were the footnotes.
Funny Jun 15, 2003
I studied this text when I was 18. Moliere is witty and humorous, which actually made reading this text a pleasure. He has lovely usage of his language.
Wonderful Oct 23, 2002
I read this in my French class... the play is hilarious, well worth reading, and if you can't read French, you should read a translation or go see the play! It's funny, and although it is like many of Molière's other plays, it's a nice deviation from the normal play.
