Please help with homework Tartuffe: caused quite a scandal back in the day
- Tartuffe caused quite a scandal back in the day? Does it still retain any shock value?
- What do you make of Orgon? Is he ultimately a sympathetic character?
- If you’re reading a verse translation of Tartuffe find yourself a prose one, or vice versa – you can find a bunch online, or even just take a look at an excerpt on Amazon.com. Now, pick a passage to compare. Do you think the two versions are fundamentally different? Is one definitely better than the other? If so, why?
