Abstract:

Monsieur Ardin, the imaginary invalid, is a thoroughgoing hypochondriac. His daughter, Angelique, is in love with Cleante. But Ardin insists that she shall marry the son of a doctor and a doctor himself, Thomas Defois. Toinette, the maid and Beralde, Ardin's brother, do everything possible to dissuade Ardin in his determination to marry Angelique to the stupid Thomas. Beline, Ardin's shrewish wife, is determined that Angelique shall become a nun so that there will be no one but she, Beline, to inherit Ardin's estate. By many tricks, Toinette and Beralde show up Beline as the mercenary she is and the doctors as the fools they are. --From publisher's description.
