Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price

Molière's most-admired comedy of manners, about a man whose quickness to criticise the flaws in others, and in himself, leads him into deep trouble.

Alceste, the 'misanthrope', hates all mankind, and despairs of its hypocrisy and falseness. He believes that the world could be perfected if people were more honest with each other.

But when his honesty starts to make him enemies, and the target of malicious gossips, it is his world and his life which suffer.

The Misanthrope, or the Cantankerous Lover (Le Misanthrope ou l'Atrabilaire amoureux) was first performed in 1666 at the Théâtre du Palais-Royal, Paris.

This English version, in the Nick Hern Books Drama Classics series, is translated and introduced by Stephen Mulrine.
