Review: Tartuffe and Other Plays

User Review  - Chris - Goodreads

I only read Tartuffe here. It was not compelling enough to overcome my distaste for plays in rhyming verse. I loved Moliere waywayway back in the day. Perhaps I read an unrhymed translation? Whatever. School for Wives pwns Tartuffe. Read full review

Review: Tartuffe and Other Plays

User Review  - Sarah Mathys - Goodreads

This was my first exposure to French plays, and it definitely made me want to search for some more. The notes before each play were incredibly helpful, although the work needed little explanation; Moliere's dry humor and beautiful, intelligent writing style were a joy to read and reread.
