From AudioFile

Classic stage actor Brian Bedford, a Molière specialist, anchors this famous comedy with a vivid, credible Tartuffe, a scheming religious hypocrite, by turns oily, whiny, prurient, and ferocious. 
The other performers, while not as inspired, are solidly proficient and do especially well at subtly underscoring the laugh lines.
A list of the characters, especially beforehand, is sorely missed; those unfamiliar with the play may have trouble pinning down who's who, especially by voice alone.
The rhyming verse of premier Molière translator Richard Wilbur, while clever and facile, and recited with easy naturalness by the actors, may occasionally sound jingly to modern ears.
But this is a fine performance of a classic that is still relevant and often funny.

Comment List (Total:17)

  •     I thoughly enjoyed reading this. The translation was much more sophisticated than the version that was focused on rhyming and in my opinion, more eloquent to boot
  •     The beauty and mastery of Richard Wilbur's quill never ceases to amaze. And Moliere's masterpiece is as current today as it was centuries ago. This along with The Misanthrope, The Learned Ladies and The School for Wives should be on the bookshelf (or on the Kindle...oh, you youngsters and your hi-tech devices) of every student of classical acting.I must admit I am chuckling at some of the "armchair scholars" who are rating this treasure "one star" attacking the play itself. Sorry kids, this is an undisputed classic of Western Literature. As they say, "time will tell" and this has more than stood the test of time. I recently wrote a review of this version in performance, certainly worth checking out.Tartuffe (Broadway Theatre Archive)
  •     Classic theatre. Old forms of the language make for a difficult reading. But Tartuffe, that appears surprisingly late in the action, is a great study in the classical manipulator.
  •     I read this book for a class. I found it very humorous at times. Overall, it was a very interesting read.
  •     Kindle version is NOT the translated English version. :(
  •     My absolute favorite. Super funny.
  •     Love it.
  •     This is advertised as the Richard Wilbur Translation but it is NOT!
  •     Another delightful Moliere play!
  •     I'm studying this play as a part of a class called "Comedy: Text and Theory". It has the classic comic narrative, which starts at the top, goes down, then comes back up (like the lips of a smiley!). Alazons include some of the main characters, but my favorite, Elmire, is an Eiron. Meaning, Orgon, Pernelle, and Tartuffe are characters that are blocked from or blocking the truth or are deceived/deceiving (Alazon characters). Elmire, Cleante, Dorine, Damis, and Mariane are Eirons, which are the "knowers" of the story; they know everything going on and usually save the day. These two groups interacting create the basis of comic action.I don't know. That probably doesn't make much sense, but if you're into comic theory at all, this goes with Northrop Frye's comic theory. Just wiki him and the terms and it'll make more sense, and make a more "Literary" feel come out of this naturally hilarious work.

  •     Had to read for a class. Hard to fallow.
  •     Molière's Tartuffe is such a classic that I won't comment on the text itself. However, as a university French professor, I must say that I just love the Petits Classiques Larousse editions of French literature. The introductions, biographies of the authors, explanations, homework questions, and essay suggestions are top notch and are very helpful for lesson planning. The text and footnotes are clear and easy to read for low advanced students. From now on, I will always look for the Petits Classiques Larousse edition of any French literature that I want to add to my syllabus.
  •     It is funny and tasteful. Hilarious and very sarcastic. satirical. I can go on and on. You have to read it to realize what i am talking about. It is a play about a cunning man fooling another man by being pious. Throughout the history people treated very well and respected religious people and this book is a great example of it. I can tell you similar things, in different settings, occurred in my childhood where i witnessed these sort of men took advantage of other people. In this story everybody else seemed to know what kind of man Tartuffe is except Orlon but in my real stories everybody seemed to believe more ridiculous situations. such as somebody was so religious and loved by god that he could fly etc. read it. It is great.
  •     This is the first play that I read for a 17th Century French Lit survey course. It is extremely funny—I laughed out loud throughout the play. The vocabulary footnotes that accompany the text are very useful without being distracting. Each act is followed by interesting analyses and questions that were extremely helpful in framing my understanding of the text.
  •     The book is nice and all, but the Kindle edition appears to be the free version that's available on Project Gutenberg.
  •     A fabulous translation of a classic masterpiece.
