“Molière may be said to have created modern French comedy by giving it a serious basis, where there had previously been little but farces and comedies of intrigue… His genius lay in his ability to combine profound observation of human nature in its complexity and in its foibles with the power of presenting these in their amusing aspect” (Harvey & Heseltine, 487). Edited with notes, bibliography and a life of Molièreby Robert Jouanny, and illustrated with numerous reproductions of illustrations from historic Molière editions.

Fine condition.
