Discussion questions – Tartuffe: What reasons could Molière have for mixing

 

  1. What reasons could Molière have for mixing the language of love and religion in Tartuffe’s speeches to Elmire (247-254; 286-290)?
  2. Why do you think Orgon is fooled so badly by Tartuffe? (See introduction, pp. 160-61. Also, the name Orgon suggests the French word orgeuil, meaning “pride.”)
