    L Avare The Miser, Moli re The Miser French L Avare is a five act comedy in prose by the French playwright Moli re It was first performed on September 9, 1668, in the theatre of the Palais Royal in Paris.The aging but vital Harpagon is hoarding every centime he can get his hands on, making sure that his two children, the virginal Elise and the dandy Cleante, live under his iron will To complicate matters, Elise has fallen in love with the handsome Valere, who masquerades as a servant in the household, despite his noble birth, and, worse yet, Cleante and Harpagon are both smitten with the same woman, the beautiful, if somewhat dim, Marianne Meanwhile, scheming servants and assorted hustlers angle for Harpagon s incredible wealth, much of which is now buried and protected by snarling Dobermans The delirious plot spirals to a wildly comic finish, filled with all the masterful plot twists and outrageous revelations one would expect from one of Moli re s finest plays 1972 1336 171 17

    Based on Plautus, this is one of five Moliere comedies I read in my rudimentary French but good Latin in grad school after one defeat or another My paper at a post doc at Harvard with Marge Garber compared Shakespeare and his Plautine sources I ve always considered the Bard best as a comedic writer, though one must concede Moliere his equal there L Avare is fairly late in Moliere s career, unlike Shakespeare s early uses of Plautus here, Aulularia , and scandalously, in prose A Duke disapproved, but Boileau laughed, said to be the only one Hence, earliest reviews dissed In Aulularia, Lyconides confesses to a crime, istuc facinus quod tuom sollicitat animum, id ego feci et fateor IV.x.734, Clarendon , exactly as in L Avare, V.iii As for my defeats increasing my appreciation My major defeat was a high status, mentally failing prof who did NOT read grad student papers Because a fellow student flattered him, quoted his Norton intro s back to him at his Ph.D orals, the prof got him a fairly good job at Princeton That fellow wrote embarassingly poorly, so he made a better career as college and university president As a whole, Moliere s plays cheered me so much I didn t care what happened in the grad classes I left for years Got my first job where 1400 people had interviewed for 3 positions we were on national news, applicants to teach than to go to college 1100 , Berkshire Community College, Pittsfield, MA in 1971 Was I better than the other 800 English apllicants I was hired because of the way I pronounced tromBONE The Chairman had always heard, TROMbone, but my Neapolitan music teacher who played an Amati bass, and tuba A Bevivino, called it tromBONE AH.

    What use will money be to us if it comes only when we are too old to enjoy it This is my second encounter with Moli re s brilliant work, and I, similarly to before, found it to be very entertaining.Moli re attention to irony, exaggeration, humour, and also to darker matters are what shape his comedies and make them truly great I strongly recommend anyone, who is only beginning to read plays and has struggle understanding and enjoying their structure, to read this one I laughed out loud at times, because of the witty dialogue and the hilarity of some particular events The humor was fantastic, and this is coming from a person, who rarely ever laughs while reading However, it also brought to mind many serious themes, the most obvious one being miserliness, in other words, greed and the consequences of it Whilst, at times the way it was presented was downright hilarious there were moments when it really did create a sense of disgust and weariness.An impressive insight into the lives of families at the time it was written, and the paranoia, isolation and madness such greed can cause.

    This French classic was my first experience of Moli re and made me a lifelong fan Unfortunately, the translation in this Kindle edition my copy is from Project Gutenberg by Charles Heron Wall isn t as good as the one I remember from years ago Richard Wilbur s While easy to read, I miss the rhyming couplets and the word play isn t as sparkling as I expect from Moli re Even with these flaws, I still had fun reading this The ending reminded me of something from a Shakespeare comedy The Comedy of Errors perhaps but I love the fact that Harpagon stays miserly to the end.

    A very nice comedy that I enjoyed Moliere was using a lot the models from his contemporary society, slightly exaggerated, to create vivid comedy plays It is likely that the same people that inspired him to create those plays were also amused when they saw them on stage.The reason I rated it 4 was because it is not as good as The middle class gentleman.My copy of this book is in Romanian.

    I can t quite remember the last time I had this much fun reading a play Oh, misunderstandings How amusing they can be when you are not the one involved in them Must confess I wasn t quite expecting that ending.A surprisingly light read Must definitely write a thank you note to my wonderful friend who has yet again recommended a book I found myself enjoying.

    Everybody should read, at least, one play by Moliere.

    How many of us have encountered someone very well off financially and yet cheaper than dirt I ve met my fair share of these people and it is with this type, the miser, that Moli re is concerned in this work I pictured the typical pop culture depiction of Dickens Ebeneezer Scrooge when reading the story about the ever so miserly Harpagon, a man who cares about his cus, which he never spends, than his family or anything else in the world, for that matter Harpagon is undoubtedly a caricature, like so many characters sketched by Moli re, and the conflicts that he encounters could not be any hilarious, using many comedic elements that are still employed to this day the servant with his hand held out for a tip when his master puts his hand in his pocket only to produce from it a handkerchief double entendres galore amplified suspicions, as when the police commissioner asks Harpagon whom he suspects of stealing his money and he replies, Everyone There is nothing very sophisticated about this work, but it is extremely entertaining and is an interesting study in avarice with an ending that resolves in a way not dissimilar from many of Shakespeare s comedies or from some of Moliere s earlier works Its great strength lies in its timelessness.
