    1. What is Comedy? What makes us laugh in theatre? A great deal has been written about this and this review could not do the concept justice. But reading and watching recently a performance of Molière’s L’École des Femmes raised the matter in front of my eyes.In this play, which as most of Molière’s plays, belongs to the subgenre of a comedy of manners, there are many of the elements that one would expect in funny plays. There are stock characters –following the tradition of the Commedia [...]

    2. We love Molière for his flair and wit And laugh out loud while the rest just sit. I saw L’Ecole des Femmes performed at the Comédie-Française in Paris two weeks ago in the company of a little group of women friends. It was a hugely enjoyable experience for many reasons but mainly because we found the play so funny, laughing more frequently than the other patrons of the theatre who seemed to be a very sober lot indeed. It helped that we’d all looked over the play recently - I had read half [...]

    3. After reading this, it comes as a surprise that people in 17th century France did not conduct all their business in alexandrine rhyming couplets, it all seems to come so natural, like.Molière, je t'adore.(All rights reserved: this is one of my own photos from a recent trek round Paris. Truly a trek, on foot. In silly shoes. I am still paying the price.)

    4. Beni okurken Moliere kadar güldüren bir oyun yazarı yok sanırım. Bu kitabını da yüzümde gülümseme ile okudum. Kadınlar konusunda bazı yargılarını kabul etmem elbette mümkün değil; ancak dönem itibariyle anlayabiliyorum diyelim. Yine de dediğim gibi çok eğlendim. Yakın bir zamanda sahnede de bir Moliere oyununa denk gelebilmem dileğiyle!

    5. Ratig: 3,5 stars“Sois-je du ciel écrasé, si je mens.”I had to read this book for french class, and here's what I thought about it:1) The story was so good and what I liked most of all was those misunderstandings that made the story so complicated and complex. The plot twist at the end was kind of fun to read! Not what I expected at all.2) The main reason why I gave it 3,5 stars was because it was so hard to read. I could not read it all relaxed in bed, no I had to read it in front of my co [...]

    6. This rhyming play with wicked humor explores the double dealings and double standards of Arnolphe, an insecure man who contrives to show the world how to rig an infallible alliance by marrying his young ward, Agnès. Arnolphe is obsessed with the fear of being made a cuckold so he has raised Agnès for 13 years in hopes to mold her to his liking. Enter young Horace and what could go wrong?! **wink**wink**

    7. Four years in studying French and the French culture, yet I still cannot understand how they possibly can make such meaningless and boring books and plays. And even movies. Moliere, I feel, had something he wanted to say but did not know how to say it. Or had nothing at all on his mind, so he made his thoughts up as he wrote. It is such a shame that writers in his time were more worried about the sound, the cohesion, and the public acceptance of their works more than the reason for writing somet [...]

    8. 4.5* for this full cast recording using Richard Wilbur's translation.This is the 4th play in the digital audiobook of "The Molière Collection" - the plays just keep getting better! However, unless you are a big Molière fan (as I am), these plays should not be listened to too close together as they have enough similarities that it could strike a listener as repetitive.

    9. As I read this play I couldn't help but draw comparisons between it and Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. Despite the fact that Molière has been translated, I felt that his humour transcended not only the limits of translation, but that it also transcended the limits of time and space more successfully than Shakespeare. I know that some argue that Katherina's final monologue is intended to be ironic, but I have difficulty reading it as such; it seems to be promoting a certain misogynism, a [...]

    10. Dear Goodreaders, as you well know from the number of ratings and editions, this play is popular - statistically likely to please. Reasons, the play has significant Molièreness: unexpected turns and twists of situations, colloquial, fluent language and plays on assumptions of the public. There is minor character development, enough to express a few themes, and a little character twist, to make things interesting. It is also long, hence the missing star, and harder to enjoy that The Misanthrope, [...]

    11. <> Escribe Molière en el prólogo de "las preciosas ridículas" hablando sobre su método de hacer teatro. Una vez más me queda demostrada su genialidad en esta pequeña sátira social de un solo acto en la que ataca el preciosismo y la estupidez de las señoritas de provincias que se emborrachan de deseos de superfluidad y vida pomposa en París. La crítica es muy interesante y, tras leer unas cuantas piezas del autor sorprende que no es la primera vez que ataca este tema. Vamos, que a [...]

    12. Ještě pár stránek před koncem jsem chtěla dát pět hvězd. Bylo to vtipné, krásně napsané (veršování je obdivuhodné) a tematicky zajímavé (postavení žen ve společnosti). Ovšem když jsem si na posledních stránách přečetla, že hlavní hrdinka je vlastně něčí dlouho ztracenou dcerou, a proto si může vzít milovaného a ne svého pěstouna, dost mě to zklamalo. "Votre sexe n´est là que pour la dépendance,Du côté de la barbe est la toute-puissance.Bien qu´on s [...]

    13. Une pièce d' un modernisme osé pour son époque. Un appel à l' éducation de la femme, à une époque encore très imprégnée du patriarcat crétino-catholique, cela a dû être accueilli plutôt fraîchement.Molière prouve ici son goût pour la provocation, et sa grande ouverture d' esprit.

    14. رابع مسرحية أقرأها لمولييربأسلوب مُختلف نوعاً ماآ، كأن الحوارات عبارة عن قصائد،أو هي قصائد بحد ذاتها، جذبتني هذه الطريقة كيثراًغير أن المفردات صعبة و تحتاج لتركيز لفهم المُحتوىو كعادة الكاتب يترك المفاجأة حتى آخر لحظة، ليرتفع الستار عن الغموضو هذه الطريقة أحبها كثيراً في [...]

    15. Far From being my favourite play by Molière, but it was funny enough and I liked it after all. The story deals with the place of woman in a house and what she should know or ignore. The main character, Arnolphe has a very precise idea on the question

    16. Lacked in ideas and originality. Characters weren't entertaining. Mostly enjoyed it because the translation was a "tour de force" and the language obviously a masterpiece

    17. je suis tout simplement tomber éperdument amoureux du théâtre grâce a cette pièce comment ai je pu passer tant d'années sans avoir essayer une seule fois la lecture d'une pièce quelle gâchis.

    18. Arnolphe who now wishes to be known as Monsieur de la Souche has kept in ward Agnes secluded in a convent school and now in a home he owns. He has attempted to keep her uneducated and quite controlled so that he may marry her and be certain she will do as he demands. His maxims for wives include: he has taken her for his bed alone, she needs no fine attire, let not her daub her face, let her be veiled whenever she leaves the house, let her not admit anyone to the house, to refuse all gifts from [...]

    19. Too bad the ending's a bit abrupt. Otherwise, this is one of Molière's best work and I'm ashamed it took me ─ a huge fan of his ─ so long to finally read this play. The story, and the message it delivers, are still very accurate in our modern days, and my edition even had a bunch of pages about Boko Haram (aka the people who think girls/women shouldn't get an education). It's a bit scary to think this play still resonates with our times, but it proves Molière's talent for observing people, [...]

    20. ثاني مسرحية أقرأها لموليير، رائعة. هناك سر في بساطة نصوص المسرحيات -بشكلٍ عام-، لا تجده في الروايات، أُحِبه!

    21. Okurken gayet eğlendim. Kadınların aptallığı ve zekiliği arasındaki çizgiyi, aldatma ve iyi eş konusunu işleyen güzel bir komedyaydı.

    22. مکتب همسران 1662 که در آن مردی قصد دارد با دختری کم سن و سال ازدواج کند، ابتدا به دلیل سنت ستیزی مولیر، مورد اعتراض قرار گرفت. آرنولفه که 42 سال دارد، آگنس 4 ساله را به دیری سپرده تا دختر را آموزش دهند و حالا که به 17 سالگی رسیده، او را به خانه آورده تا با او ازدواج کند، به این خیال که [...]

    23. A reviving and refreshing comedy by Moliére,Let me be frank, I wasn't encouraged when I started this "oeuvre", even though I have a good history with other books of Moliére, like "Le Malade Imaginaire", but maybe it was because our french teacher is the one who ordered us to read this book (I believe that books we study in High school leave really a bad memory) But this certainly wasn't the case!And since starting, I couldn't help but think what a genius Moliére is!What is comedy? Comedy does [...]

    24. De conception traditionnelle, cette collection a le m��rite d'aborder l'��uvre int��grale sous des angles diversifi��s. Outre le r��sum�� d��taill�� des diff��rentes parties et les commentaires compos��s qui le compl��tent, chaque ouvrage propose une synth��se litt��raire assez riche : il y est question de l'auteur, des personnages, de la gen��se et de l'architecture de l'��uvre mais aussi de ses particularit��s stylistiques, des r [...]

    25. È un libro bellissimo sotto tanti punti di vista.Il curatore, Jean Serroy, è molto bravo. Il saggio introduttivo, anche se un po' lungo, permette di inquadrare perfettamente l'autore nel periodo e nelle visioni sociali dell'epoca. Mi è anche piaciuto il modo in cui è stato trattato il rapporto fra l'opera di Molière e la sua storia personale.Quest'opera è stata pubblicata pochissimi mesi dopo il matrimonio dell'autore, suggerendo un nesso fra l'evento e l'ossessione del tradimento del prot [...]

    26. Part farce, part romance, part psychological study a la Othello. There's some amount of goofiness about this play, but there is also a real truth here about how love and sex can can lead us to some pretty dark places. I think I would have liked this play more without the comedic elements. It was almost as if Molière desperately wanted to pen a tragedy with this play, but he didn't quite trust himself, or perhaps his audience, enough to really commit to that urge. If that was his secret desire, [...]

    27. Arnolphe, un "macho" qui a une peur extrême du cocuage, reçoit la confidence (innocente) du jeune Horace, l'amant de la femme qu'il voulait épouser "Agnès" il essaye de les séparer mais leur amour finit par triompher. Arnolphe: "Bien qu'on soit deux moitiés de la société,Ces deux moitiés pourtant n'ont point d'égalité;L'une est moitié suprême et l'autre subalterne,L'une en tout est soumise à l'autre qui gouverne" Horace: "Il le faut avouer, l'amour est un grand maîtreCe qu'on ne [...]

    28. I read this play for a French Lit. class and enjoyed Moliere's sense of humor. I laughed out loud as I watched everyone's plans go horribly awry. A great classic social commentary. It centers around one man's obsessive fear of cuckoldry (when a man's wife cheats on him), and the extremes to which he goes to avoid this. He practically emprisons a girl/young woman so that she can be raised properly and will make a faithful and obedient wife when she finally matures. The only problem for me was tha [...]
