The Bungler

Translated by Richard Wilbur

Paperback £14.99

An English verse translation of Molière's first great play.

The Bungler was the first of Molière's plays to be written in verse. It is a charming farce set in Sicily and born of the great Italian tradition of the commedia dell'arte.

'Wilbur has the uncanny ability to create English versions that never feel like translations. They read and play as if they were originally written in English.' Dana Gioia

Richard Wilbur is a celebrated poet and translator, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award in the US.
