The Misanthrope

Average rating
4 out of 5
Based on 76 Ratings and 19 Reviews

Book Description
A reworking of Moliere's comic play. Alceste abhors hypocrisy and the well-rehearsed, sycophantic pleasantries of the chattering classes. He tells the truth, even it hurts. Alceste is in love with Jennifer (Celimene), but thinks she's in love with a theatre critic who thinks he can write plays.
