encounter with Moli re s brilliant work and I similarly to before it Based on Plautus this is one of five Moliere comedies I read in my rudimentary French but good Latin in grad school after one defeat or another My paper at a post doc at Harvard with Marge Garber compared Shakespeare and his Plautine sources I ve always considered the Bard best as a comedic writer though one must concede Moliere his ual there L Avare is fairly late in Moliere s career unlike Shakespeare s arly uses of Plautus here Aulularia and scandalously in prose A Duke disapproved but Boileau laughed said to be the only one Hence arliest reviews dissedsecond ncounter with Moli re s brilliant work and I similarly to before
