Tartuffe
by Molière

Le Tartuffe ou l'Imposteur is one of the most famous theatrical comedies by Molière where his characteristic qualities are represented better than ever. The characters of Tartuffe, Valère, and Dorine are considered among the greatest classical theater roles.

Molière's method of portraying life may not seem to be going too deep; but it is precisely the simplicity with which creations like Tartuffe embody the weakness or vice they represent that has given them their place as universally recognized types of human nature.

As a result of Molière's play, contemporary French and English both use the word "tartuffe" to designate a hypocrite who feigns virtue with fanfare, especially religious virtue, at which hypocritical gesture Molière jabs at throughout the whole play.

Some notes (the shorter and vocabulary oriented ones) are inserted in the text, whereas longer and context providing notes are appended at the end of the play.
