Monsieur De Pourceaugnac - Persons Represented

MR. DE POURCEAUGNAC.
by MOLIERE
Translated by Charles Heron Wall

Translated into English Prose.
With Short Introductions and Explanatory Notes.
by CHARLES HERON WALL

'Monsieur de Pourceaugnac', acted on October 6, 1669, is nothing but a farce. But Moliere excels in farce as well as in higher comedy, and 'Monsieur de Pourceaugnac' is one of the best of its kind. The attacks upon the doctors of the time are not exaggerated. Moliere acted the part of Mr. de Pourceaugnac.
