Tartuffe

Hackett Publishing
Free sample

Prudence Steiner's lively prose translation of Molière's great comedy remains close to the original French, while casting the speech of characters in a slightly compressed and formalized way that comes very close to the original effect created by Molière's verse.  This edition includes translations of Molière's three appeals to the king, as well as an introductory essay by Roger Herzel, which discusses Molière's life, Tartuffe and the comic tradition, and the setting, language and style of the play.
