Theatre: The Misanthrope

The Misanthrope is a comic drama about the foibles of bourgeois society and those who rail against it. Alceste, the misanthrope (a person who dislikes humanity in general), vows to abandon gossip and flattery and always tell the truth. Celimene, whom Alceste falls in love with, epitomizes the falsity and hypocrisy of bourgeois high society.
