  • Molière

    Jean Baptiste Poquelin, also known by his stage name, Moli re, was a French playwright and actor who is considered one of the greatest masters of comedy in Western literature Among Moli re s best known dramas are Le Misanthrope, The Misanthrope , L Ecole des femmes The School for Wives , Tartuffe ou l Imposteur, Tartuffe or the Hypocrite , L Avare ou l cole du mensonge The Miser , Le Malade imaginaire The Imaginary Invalid , and Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme The Bourgeois Gentleman.From a prosperous family and having studied at the Jesuit Clermont College now Lyc e Louis le Grand , Moli re was well suited to begin a life in the theatre Thirteen years as an itinerant actor helped to polish his comic abilities while he also began writing, combining Commedia dell Arte elements with the refined French comedy.Through the patronage of a few aristocrats including the brother of Louis XIV, Moli re procured a command performance before the King at the Louvre Performing a classic play by Pierre Corneille and a farce of his own, Le Docteur amoureux The Doctor in Love , Moli re was granted the use of Salle du Petit Bourbon at the Louvre, a spacious room appointed for theatrical performances Later, Moli re was granted the use of the Palais Royal In both locations he found success among the Parisians with plays such as Les Pr cieuses ridicules The Affected Ladies , L cole des maris The School for Husbands and L cole des femmes The School for Wives This royal favour brought a royal pension to his troupe and the title Troupe du Roi The King s Troupe Moli re continued as the official author of court entertainments.Though he received the adulation of the court and Parisians, Moli re s satires attracted criticisms from moralists and the Church Tartuffe ou l Imposteur Tartuffe or the Hypocrite and its attack on religious hypocrisy roundly received condemnations from the Church while Don Juan was banned from performance Moli re s hard work in so many theatrical capacities began to take its toll on his health and, by 1667, he was forced to take a break from the stage In 1673, during a production of his final play, Le Malade imaginaire The Imaginary Invalid , Moli re, who suffered from pulmonary tuberculosis, was seized by a coughing fit and a haemorrhage while playing the hypochondriac Argan He finished the performance but collapsed again and died a few hours later In his time in Paris, Moli re had completely reformed French comedy.

  • Book Review4 out of 5 stars to Tartuffe a play written in 1664 by Molière. I read this play as part of a course on Theatre and Drama several years ago. I also acted in a staged version of this story. I really enjoyed it, especially learning more about the characters and story through the director's eyes and opinions. The story is about a con artist who worms his way into a family's affections by claiming to be a religious man. The father essentially offers his daughters hand in marriage to the [...]

  • Mocking the HeavensAs I read this I was reminded most often of the god-men of India: of their scandals, of their dedicated followers who are so willingly duped, and of the politicians who pretend to be devoted for their own purposes.I can only imagine what parallel suggestion would have been easily engendered in the French minds as they sat through this devastating play.It is no surprise that there was such outage. It is no surprise that it was banned for so long. The device Molière employs is [...]

  • Tartuffe (Imposter), written by French playwright Moliere in 1664, and first performed that same year. It's a comedy, and even though it reads well, I imagine to be truly appreciated it would be better to see the stage production, and see these remarkable characters come to life. It was banned shortly after the first production because it offended the Church and the upper class French society. The Archbishop of Paris threatened to excommunicate anyone who read, watched, or performed in the play. [...]

  • When I read this play for the first time, I had a strange feeling that I'd seen it somewhere before. Cretinous Orgon can't understand what's obvious to the audience and everyone else in the play, namely that the slimy cleric Tartuffe is not only trying to ruin him, but also to get into his wife's pants. He seems to have neatly engineered his own downfall when - hey presto! - a deus ex machina saves the day. It's very funny.After a little thought, I realized that this is the basic structure of se [...]

  • While reading the Chekhov play Ivanoff recently, I became curious about why one character told another not to be a Tartuffe. I Googled and discovered that in French and English, calling anyone a Tartuffe means that they are a hypocrite, especially one who pretends to be overly pious. And I learned that the term comes from the play of the same name by Moliere. So here we are with my first Stray Cat book of 2016; one of those books that curl purring around your ankles until you simply have to read [...]

  • Conned by a Charlatan18 May 2013 Isn't it interesting that there are some sectors of society that get really upset if you poke fun at them, or even criticise them in anyway. Normally this happens because these particular people are well aware that what they are doing is wrong and that they are simply playing on people's stupidity to get away with what is little more than fraud. Much of the offence that is generated is not so much offence at the fun, but rather that what the person are doing is r [...]

  • What! Will you find no difference betweenHypocrisy and genuine devoutness?And will you treat them both alike, and payThe self-same honour both to masks and facesSet artifice beside sincerity,Confuse the semblance with reality,Esteem a phantom like a living person,And counterfeit as good as honest coin?Reread for school. Surprisingly, I liked it even more the second time around.Also Dorine is amazing, all right?DorineThen what’s your plan about this other match? MarianeTo kill myself, if it is [...]

  • El tema principal de la obra es genial. Aborda cómo se puede ser hipócrita usando a la religión. He leído otros libro también hablando de esto, pero lo especial aquí es que todo es obra de Molière, lo que significa que, en la Francia clásica del siglo XVII, eso era casi un crimen. Hablar mal de las elites, de los poderosos. Él era un gran artista, pero nunca fue lo suficientemente querido precisamente por eso, por decir la verdad sin filtro en una época y lugar erróneos.Como dije, la [...]

  • As a Christian myself, I read Tartuffe with close precision. Taking apart each verse, I tried to figure out if the play was really an attack on Christianity and my faith. However, after close examination of the play, I found that the play doesn’t really try to attack the Christian faith. Rather, it tries extremely hard to avoid such an attack, and instead simply targets the hypocrites in the Church at the time.Many parts of the play show the respect that Moliere had for religion. An example of [...]

  • Za potpuno razumevanje "Tartifa" neophodno je pomenuti kontekst u kojem ovo delo nastaje. U Francuskoj tog doba (1660ih) su svi koji su na bilo koji način delovali i govorili protiv vere i crkve bili surovo kažnjavani, bez obzira na Nantski edikt koji je garantovao versku slobodu protestantima. Ovakve okolnosti uticale su na međuljudske odnose, uzrokujući strah i zaziranje od špijuniranja i špijuna u vidu rođaka ili komšije koji bi mogli da ih prokažu organima vlasti zbog krivoverja i b [...]

  • 3.5 I haven't read many plays, not including, Shakespeare's work, but I can safely say that I enjoyed this one. It was humorous, fun and the characters were very well developed (even in such a short play). My only problem was with the language; there were some lines I just couldn't really grasp the meaning of. Luckily, the edition I had, contained lots of annotations, otherwise, I think I'd have some trouble understanding what was going on. But, otherwise, it was a very good read with an interes [...]

  • I'm asking myself, and keep looking at the introduction, 'was this book really published in 17th century?' I'm practically astounded and enjoy every bits of it.Pathetic people always amuse me. I'd rather have a personal conversation with my God than showing off to other people that I go to church on regular basis. Dude I know some people who go to church to find a hubby/wife/bf/gf!***Hanya bisa bilang, Tartuffe hebat! Setiap orang harusnya tidak setengah-setengah dalam melakukan apapun. Jika kau [...]

  • I swear, no matter how tired, sad or angry I ammehow, Moliere always manages to put a smile on my face! I like to read his books , listen to the audiobooksI can't get tired to read/listen his masterpieces! Because, he was a genius and his work is brilliant!! In my opinion he is one of the greatest masters of comedy in western literature! Hands down!! Now, let's talk about 'Tartuffe'!! This was good, not as good as 'The Learned Ladies', 'The Imaginary Invalid' or 'The Impostures of Scapin', but s [...]

  • I thought this was rather good. I think my issue, as it is with most plays, is that it wasn't meant to be read. The reactions, the slapstick antics of Dorine and Orgon, these were all meant to be performed and witnessed to highten their humor. As it is, the dialogue is amusing, and much of the humor can still seep through, but I know that where I was smirking with the text I would probably be laughing at the play.Outside of that, I think if it was a play I was watching I would love it. To commit [...]

  • Tartuffe was banned from public performance for several years because of the Catholic church--the Archbishop of Paris declared that anyone who saw, performed in, or even read the play would be excommunicated. Apparently he was upset about the false piety of the title character. For me though, the work is more of a scathing critique of a family patriarch who leads his family to misery and disaster because of his blind allegiance to such a figure (an even bigger dig at the church?). But the real s [...]

  • At first read I was so confused, then I remembered I AM READING A PLAY.A play, by necessity, is all dialogue and some action. Therefore, the fact I had no idea who anyone was, well wth was I thinking? I made a copy of the actors and who they were on notepad, and referred to his as I read until I figured out who everyone is. No info-dumps for sure. You need to read - or watch the play - and PAY ATTENTION to know who is who. I have just told any play-goer or play-reader what he or she already know [...]

  • From BBC Radio 3 - Drama on 3:A Liverpool Playhouse production of Roger McGough's version of Moliere's comedy Tartuffe.The wealthy merchant Orgon has taken in an apparently indigent religious man, Tartuffe. He is a beacon of piety and soon has his feet firmly under the table. But all is not as it seems and as Orgon becomes more enraptured with his new companion the whole city is chattering. Is he a friend, a fraud, a miracle or a hypocrite?bbc/programmes/b00lfp66

  • Пуф, в началото докато оправя роднинските връзки и разбера, кой на кого е слуга трудна работа. Обаче пиесата си беше смешна и определено края си беше подобаващ.

  • I wasn't planning on reading this just yet, but a two hour drive home from school (which is usually a twenty minute drive) persuaded me. Tartuffe is a satirical play by the acclaimed French play-write Molière, dealing with a family taken in by a manipulative and hypocritical religious man.The Good- Dorine. Though apparently a stock character of Molière (I haven't read any of his other works), I really enjoyed her character and was most amused by her humour than any other.- Religious satire. I [...]

  • Ah yes, now here is a good story written in 17th century France! Molière did no wrong here as far as I was concerned. I really find it astounding how entertaining a comedy this was (still is) and yet you can learn something in it! I try not to ruin or talk about a plot in my review if I think it will spoil but I must mention my favorite character: Cléante, you smooth mother ****er you! By far the best and most badass in this play; he was in control from curtain up to curtain down and seemed to [...]

  • 2 starsHad to read this for my Theatre class, and it was OK. I've read better plays though, and I have to say that the rhyming was annoying at first, but then grew on me because I realized the writer had to rhyme EVERYTHING in the play. Which made me realize had to have taken tremendous talent! I mean, that's over 100 pages of constant rhyming!Overall, it wasn't anything special but it wasn't horrible.

  • Ah, Tartuffe! Proof that adoration towards a human being is wrong.Orgon invites Tartuffe into his home, promptly giving him all of his time and devotion, as well as his young daughter's hand in marriage. His family thinks Tartuffe is using him. Can Orgon see reason before it's too late?Even though I was expecting some sort of coup, Molière surprised me with the outcome. Funny with great rhymes and quotes, Tartuffe just became one of my favorite comedies.

  • (my translation is by Morris Bishop)At first glance a relatively easy play to categorize simply as farce, further reflection on Molière’s Tartuffe raises vexing questions. The story is simple. A religious zealot, Tartuffe, is rescued from poverty by Orton and brought to live in his benefactor’s home where his strict moral attitudes raise havoc with the rest of the family. Eventually Tartuffe makes the mistake of wooing Orton’s wife, Elmire, is kicked out of the house (but only after Orton [...]

  • Once again, Moliere succeeds in creating a funny yet scathing play, this time attacking religious hypocrisy and blind faith towards the King. I have to admit, I haven't actually laughed at many plays- that is reserved for truly good comedies such as the works of Oscar Wilde, Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot, and the works of Moliere. Tartuffe is definitely a play that caused me to chuckle at least a few times; what a smart comedy this is!My one gripe about Tartuffe is that while Tartuffe himse [...]

  • Surprisingly really good--I acted in a Molière play (in French) back in college as Argan from La malade imaginaire, albeit in a few famous scenes, and have seen, with my limited French, scenes from Tartuffe that advanced French students played. But dammit, I didn't know how good and funny Molière is until I read this. His comic sensibility is impeccable, with keen observations about human foibles that echo across centuries and are still very much applicable today: the exaggerated way Mariane a [...]

  • Molière tackles in this work religious hypocrisy and does so in a manner that is superior to (but as controversial as) Sinclair Lewis' Elmer Gantry. But as daring as Molière's classic work may have been in the 1660s and as controversial as it may still be today, the playwright's fault (in my eyes) is his glowing admiration for the monarchy. Much like the philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, one can't help but wonder how much more radical would have been his writing if not so constrained [...]

  • Any book or play that starts with a grandmother reading the hell out of her entire family - well, sign me up. The body of the text? Well, it's twisted, funny, and thoroughly enjoyable. The maid was - well, spicy as f***Final thoughts?
