This 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 formalised way that comes very close to the original effect created by Molière's verse. This edition includes an introductory essay, notes, and translations of Molière's three appeals to the king.

Richard Wilbur's verse translation of Tartuffe has been acclaimed as a masterpiece in its own right. Set in rhymed couplets, it captures not only the tone of the original but the dramatic energy as well. Not surprisingly, the play in this translation has been performed regularly over the years. One of Moliere's most popular plays, Tartuffe, written in 1669, tells the story of Orgon, a rich bourgeois who has become a prude and bigot in his middle age. He is the perfect mark for Tartuffe, a wily opportunist and swindler, who ingratiates himself with Orgon by affecting an air of piety. Soon the gulled Orgon not only hands over his fortune but offers his daughter in marriage to Tartuffe. But Orgon discovers his "spiritual" master's true nature in a most shocking and hilarious fashion.

Orgon is the man who has everything. Money, power, a beautiful family. But lately he's been questioning the point of it all. When he invites Tartuffe into his perfect household, he unleashes a whirlwind of deception and seduction that threatens everything. With Orgon under Tartuffe's spell, can his family outwit this charismatic trickster? Are Tartuffe's wild claims truth or fiction? This mysterious stranger may not be quite the villain he appears. John Donnelly's ferocious new version of Molière's comic masterpiece looks at the lengths we go to find meaning - and what happens when we find chaos instead. Tartuffe, the Imposter opened at the National Theatre, London, in February 2019.

Molieres 'Tartuffe' gehort zu den popularsten Theaterstucken Europas - nicht ohne Grund, denn Heuchler, insbesondere religiose, enttarnt zu sehen ist ein Vergnugen der besonderen Art. Auch in Indien bestand zu keiner Zeit ein Mangel an entsprechenden Studienobjekten, so dass die Adaptation des Stucks durch P.K. Atre (einem der bekanntesten Autoren des indischen Bundesstaats Maharashtra) aus dem Jahr 1963 gut in das Bild kritischer Texte und volkstumlichen Witzes seit dem indischen Mittelalter passt. Die sudasiatische Tartuffe-Version ist fur westliche Leser aus verschiedenen Grunden reizvoll: Tartuffes indisches Gegenstuck ist ein Guru, d.h. er gehort einer Spezies an, die inzwischen auch hierzulande anzutreffen ist. Geschickt hat der Autor das franzosische Szenario des 17. Jh. in das Indien des 20. Jh. eingepasst, naturlich mit einigen charakteristischen Veranderungen. Diese betreffen teils die gesellschaftlichen Verhaltnisse, teils die ausseren Formen der Religiositat, von denen auch einige der altehrwurdigsten von Atres Witz nicht verschont bleiben. Um westlichen Lesern den Einstieg in die hinduistische Welt zu erleichtern, sind der Ubersetzung ausfuhrliche Noten und eine Einfuhrung beigegeben. Fur diejenigen, die ihre Kenntnisse des Mara - h - (der Sprache Maharashtras) aufbessern wollen, enthalt der Band zusatzlich das Original des Stucks.Molieres 'Tartuffe' is one of the most popular plays of Europe - not without reason, because it is a pleasure of the special kind to see unmasked hypocrites - religious in particular. As is the case in Europe, a lack of appropriate study objects also never existed in India. The adaptation of the piece by P.K. Atre (a well-known author of the Indian Federal State Maharashtra) from the year 1963 therefore fits well into the tradition of critical texts and popular jokes since the Indian Middle Ages. The South Asiatic version of Tartuffe is delightful for Western readers for different reasons: Tartuffe's Indian counterpart is a Guru, i.e. he belongs to a species, which can be found also in Europe in the meantime. With great skills the author has adapted the French scenario of the 17th Century into the India of the 20th Century naturally with some characteristic changes. These concern partly social and religious conditions, of which even some of the most patriarchal do not remain exempted from Atres jokes. In order to facilitate the entrance into the Hindu world for western readers, the translation is accompanied by detailed notes and an introduction. For those, who want to improve their knowledge of the Marahi (the language Maharashtras), the volume contains additionally the original of the piece.
