Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This collection of hilarious plays from the 15th to the 20th centuries is brimming with all of the venerable ingredients of French farce. Distinguished drama scholar Albert Bermel has gathered together some of the best in the genre, and the merriment, ribaldry, and wit of the works dance through his translations brilliantly.
