Summer Classics :Moliere's The Misanthrope
Moliere's The Misanthrope

First performed in 1666, this comedy of manners satirizes the hypocrisies of French aristocratic society while pointing out the flaws which all humans possess. This play differs from most of Molière's other works by focusing more on character development and nuances than on plot progression
The main character, Alceste, rejects social conventions. His refusal to "make nice" makes him tremendously unpopular and he laments his isolation in a world he sees as superficial and base.
Despite his convictions, however, Alceste cannot help but love the flighty and vivacious Célimène, a consummate flirt. His deep feelings for her primarily serve to counter his negative expressions about mankind, since the fact that he has such feelings includes him amongst those he so fiercely criticizes. Today the play remains Molière's best-known work.
