Who read Tartuffe help me please: Try to pick a ruling passion for each major character
- Try to pick a ruling passion for each major character in the play and defend your choice. For example what passion do you think motivates Orgon to trust Tartuffe?
- How effective is reason in stemming the passions of various characters (especially Orgon) in the play? What (if anything) really works to change people’s behavior, to make them see the error, extremity, and blindness of their passions? What do you think Molière is saying about the relations between reason, passion and authority?
