Nach dem Abitur versucht meine Tochter ihr Französisch (und ich meines) nicht zu verlernen. Le Tartuffe ist ein schönes Buch, allerdings mit vielen altertümlichen Vokabeln nicht zu einfach. Eigentlich schade, dass solche Literatur in der Schule nicht gelesen wird.
The most amazing thing about this play is the skill of its author. The story is original and interesting. The actual writing is what captivated me. So witty is the dialogue, so humorous it is at times, that I laughed out loud. It is quite amazing that such ancient text sounds like something you would hear on a sitcom. This is not boring or confusing speech, like in Shakespeare; this is very down-to-earth. Aside from the alluring rhyme, Moliere has an incredible ability to take a page-long theme and express it perfectly and succinctly in one sentence, and with poignancy. If I were given the task of writing dialogue about the theme of hypocrisy, I would write page after page of ineffective, watered-down, wordy dialogue that repeatedly misses the mark of expressing the point well. Moliere's lines, however, are so well-crafted that the ideas are ingeniously short and accurate. He fits so many good points into one entertaining, rhythmic, memorable sentence. Tartuffe is my favorite play of all!
"Tartuffe" by Moliere is a feeble attempt at extrodinary literature. The writing itself is lacking in drama and power, and the development of the play through rhyme patterns fails to alleviate the torment of reading it. The reader must realize that at the time Moliere was penning this work, he was in debtor's prison. His clever incorporation of monarchial laud was his means of finding favor in the prince to possibly mitigate his sentence, as well as for him [Moliere] to raise enough to set bail. "Tartuffe" is a boring play satirizing Catholic religion and ignorant people who are duped by a wily man using God to deceive and rob a family who cannot see the true nature of Tartuffe. In fact, "tartuffe" is French for "thief". I seriously would not recommend reading this play, and know 11 other people who would agree.
Tartuffe is, without doubt, one of the works responsible for placing Molière alongside to the geniuses of Aeschilus and Shakespeare. Here, the human imposture and hipocrasy is not just seen as a way for corrupting others lives, but of also corrupting the own love for all which really matters in life. Tartuffe surpasses the means of a simple comedy of ways to become itself a drama of human being; every time someone laughs of Tartuffe, he/she must do it recognizing that something has to be changed so that he/she does not become laughable.
I dropped in here to see how Monsieur Moliere was doing with the online reviewers, and was glad to see that most people are still delighted by this masterpiece -- particularly in Richard Wilbur's supernaturally brilliant translation. I've been using this translation in a dramatic lit course for several years, and all of the best and brightest students LOVE the thing. The plot is insane, the satire is edgy, and the couplets are delicious. Buy it today; read it as soon as it arrives.
Tartuffe was one of many plays assigned to me in a college literature class, but I found Tartuffe to be more enjoyable than others. The characters were well developed and the dialouge was somewhat comical. The play read fairly quickly but was not boring. I think this was a good literature assignment and I would recommend it as a great comic play.
I loved "Tartuffe." Dorine was a fantastic representation of a maid who sticks her nose in too much for good purpose. Mariane was great as a "dutiful daughter." The play kept me in suspense, especially when Tartuffe admitted his lust for Elmire, and Orgon thought he was being hard on himself.
A wonderful book, what more can one say about it? The author has translated it into rhyming couplets that are perfect for the type of play/drama it is. This type of book really gives you insight to the way people think and how easily someone can fall into the hands of the wrong people.
