Tartuffe Tough-o-Meter

Advertisement - Guide continues below


(4) Base Camp

Tartuffe makes for a funny, zippy little read/watch, especially when it's in verse. This doesn't mean it's insubstantial, though. There are lessons to be learned her – mostly from Cléante – about piety, wisdom, society, and generosity. And that same zippiness that makes things fun can make that heavy stuff a bit too easy to tune out. So keep your eyes/ears open, and don't neglect the serious bits.
