One of Molière's greatest and best known plays, The Misanthrope is a clever satire of French society and a dramatic character piece. It follows Alceste, the misanthrope, as he struggles between his hatred of la politesse, the social conventions of the seventeenth-century French salon, and his love for a young women, Célimène, who is very much a part of that society. Several other suitors of Célimène arrive at the home of Alceste along with several women romantically pining for the misanthrope despite his convictions about society, resulting in some very uncomfortable and emotional incidences.
