Synopsis: The Miser is one of the most famous and most performed plays in the history of theater, written in 1668 by Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, known as MoliŤre. Harpagon has become a key figure in theater and the archetype of the miser in colloquial English.
Review: While seeking rest from daily care, I learned that Monsieur Moli√®re, The darling of the muses nine, Whose blessings flow on him like wine, Is now presenting on the stage. Yes, he's the idol of the age. A Miser who diverts us all; And not a little bit. His thrall Encompasses; his scope is vast; He makes us laugh from first to last. He speaks in prose and not in verse; But the effect is none the worse. His prose is so theatrical; Its essence is dramatical. This Miser, then, whose praise one sings, Is prodigal in comic things. What's more, the acting's excellent. Your time could not be better spent. --Charles Robinet, Letters in Verse, Paris, 15 September 1668
