Details

Document Type: Book
All Authors / Contributors: Molière
OCLC Number: 5687059
Notes: "These two volumes contain between them twenty plays ... in a version by H. Baker and J. Miller, two eighteenth-century playwrights, which has more of the spirit of the original than would be found in a more modern version. Their prefaces to each play have been retained as showing the English professional attitude to Molière at a period some seventy years after his death, when, however, the same general dramatic principles still reigned on the English as on the French stage.."--Jacket.
