Abstract:

Clutching ever-present rosary beads, shifting uncomfortably within the hairshirt he wears as continual penance--and always eyeing the women as they pass--Tartuffe, Moliére's master of unctuous evil, insinuates himself into a wealthy Parisian household in this indictment of religious hypocrisy. Posing as a holy man, the wily Tartuffe entrances Orgon, a credulous well-to-do merchant, bent on bestowing his worldly goods, social position, and nubile daughter on the perfidious fraud. Tartuffe delights in accepting it all--and also arranges a little depraved dalliance with Orgon's young wife, Elmire.
