Tartuffe help me with homework: What does the character of Orgon reveal about the traits
In seventeenth-century France, fathers were believed to be absolute rulers of their homes in the same way that kings were thought to be absolute rulers of their realms. Thus, some critics have argued, the pathetic dupe Orgon in Moliere’s Tartuffe may be viewed as a model of bad kingship. What does the character of Orgon reveal about the traits of a bad ruler? Be sure to cite specifics in your argument.
