Tartuffe, the misanthrope, & the bourgeois gentleman : notes by Denis Calandra( )

10 editions published between 1967 and 2002 in English and held by 1,289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is one of Shakespeare's problematic plays and his most farcical. The arc of love's victory in All's Well That Ends Well doesn't compel an audience's compassion, yet it is still a skillfully written play. The Merry Wives of Windsor has been criticized for having been written in 14 days, yet it brims with wit and features a new tale of Falstaff, one of literature's greatest characters
