9781472510716: The Misanthrope (Modern Plays)

Affection I can endure,
affectation I abhor. Empty phrases,
meaningless gestures of faked good-will.
These affable dispensers of embraces make me ill.

Disgusted with French society where powdered fops gossip in code and bejewelled coquettes whisper behind fans, poet Alceste embarks on a one-man crusade against fakery, frippery and forked tongues. But could the woman he adores be the worst culprit of them all? And in this rarefied world will his revolution prove merely revolting?

Considered by many to be Molière's best work, The Misanthrope was first performed in 1666 in Paris by the King's Players. Following the huge successes of Tartuffe and The Hypochondriac master wordsmith Roger McGough once again dips his quill into a Molière classic in this mockery of manners and morals set amid seventeenth-century French aristocracy and written in verse.

Book Description:

Following the huge successes of Tartuffe and The Hypochondriac master wordsmith Roger McGough once again dips his quill into The Misanthrope, the comedy many consider to be Molière's best work.

About the Author:

Roger McGough, CBE is one of the pre-eminent poets writing today. As one of the Liverpool poets alongside Brian Patten and Adrian Henri, he helped create the art of performance poetry. He is also an accomplished playwright, with two of his previous adaptations of Molière's plays published by Methuen Drama. He was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 2004.

Molière (1622-1673) was a French playwright and actor-manager who raised the standard of French comedy to a level commensurate with French tragedy.
