The furiously paced farces of Georges Feydeau have been playing to delighted audiences throughout the world, including Japan, ever since they were first presented in turn-of-the-century Paris. Feydeau has been hailed by critics as "the greatest comic writer after Molière." His masterpieces of life in the "belle époque," like all durable drama, exist on several levels. Anticipating moderns like Ionesco, Feydeau, as the author well demonstrates, "suggests sad truths in the gayest of manners." This is the first full-length study of Feydeau to be published in English.
