Pseudo-intellectualism is all the fashion, and Chrysale is a man under siege. Philaminte, his wife, is enthralled by the pedantic poet Trissotin and is determined to marry their youngest daughter, Henriette, to him in spite of her husband's opposition and Henriette's protests that she be allowed to marry the sensible Clitandre. In the end, Henriette is united with her beloved, but not before Trissotin abandons his suit-just when it appears that the family's fortunes have been lost through Philaminte's spendthrift highbrow pursuits

Le jeu de l'amour et du hasard or The Game of Love and Chance is a three-act romantic comedy by French playwright Marivaux. In this play, a young woman is visited by her betrothed, whom she does not know. To get a better idea of the type of person he is, she trades places with her servant and disguises herself. However, unbeknownst to her, her fiancé has the same idea and trades places with his valet. The "game" pits the two false servants against the two false masters, and in the end, the couples fall in love with their appropriate counterpart.--Wikipedia

Polyeucte by Pierre Corneille( Book )

10 editions published between 1891 and 1909 in French and English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This seventeenth-century drama in five acts was inspired by the tale of Saint Polyeuctus (rendered as 'Polyeucte' in French), a Roman convert to the faith who was martyred in 259 A.D. However, although an imaginatively retold version of the story of St. Polyeuctus comprises some of the plot of the play, Polyeucte also relates metaphorically to the religious debates of the seventeenth century. A must-read for fans of classic drama
