The Countess of Escarbagnas

The Countess of Escarbagnas

About this book

A story on a provincial woman who boasts of having learned good manners in Paris.

One of Molière's best one-act plays, The Countess of Escarbagnas blends broad farce and pointed wit to express his never-ending delight in human foibles. But Molière is more than just the "master of the laugh," for behind the comic gestures of these matchless rogues, tight-fisted masters, possessive lovers and elegant ladies lurk fears, insecurities and their consequences.
