Product Description

From Library Journal

This anthology of four 17th-century comedies by Moli?re (Jean Baptiste Poquelin, 1622-73) is translated by Pergolizzi, a theater director and French teacher. Following the tradition of 16th-century Italian commedia dell'arte, Moli?re has remained a popular playwright through the centuries. As a social critic, he used farce and satire to "[deal] with the common man and [poke] fun at the pretentiousness of the elite." This anthology comprises The Bourgeois Gentleman, The Doctor in Spite of Himself, The Affected Damsels, and The Miser (in both regular and shorter versions). The first three comedies are included in an earlier anthology of eight plays, translated by Morris Bishop of Cornell University (1957). This new translation is rendered in a more colloquial style, and the use of quick scenes and inclusion of seven musical scores with lyrics are better for production. The larger font size and clearer typographic layout also make this anthology more appealing. Recommended for both academic and public libraries.AMing-ming Shen Kuo, Ball State Univ. Lib., Muncie, IN
