Refreshingly uncynical love story

This review looks at the The Misanthrope and Hosanna, both translated from French. “It’s plain that these two love one another, and that they both lose….Molière had more invested in Alceste than in any of his other protagonists. It’s not just that he played the role himself (as actor-manager, he always starred in his own shows); it’s that his much younger wife played Celimene.
