Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Teeming with lively humor and satirical plot devices, this timeless comedy by one of France's greatest playwrights follows the outrageous activities of a penniless scoundrel and religious pretender. Invited to live in his benefactor's house, he wreaks havoc among family members by breaking off the daughter's engagement, attempting to seduce his hostess, and resorting to blackmail and extortion. Essential reading for students of theater and literature. A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.

Synopsis:

Celebrated for his satirical works, Moliere delighted in lampooning the social pretensions and conceits of 17th-century France. In this 1664 verse comedy, a religious poseur wreaks havoc in his benefactor's household, where Tartuffe imposes a rigidly puritanical regimen on the formerly happy family. After breaking off Orgon's daughter's engagement and attempting to seduce his hostess, Tartuffe resorts to blackmail and extortion but ultimately receives his just desserts. Essential reading for students of theater and literature, Tartuffe abounds in lively humor and satirical plot devices.
