L'avare, c'est Harpagon, qui aime ses écus plus que tout au monde. Plus que son fils, à qui il veut faire marier une veuve bien nantie, plus que sa fille, à qui il destine un homme d'age très mur, mais riche, plus même que ses chevaux qui crèvent de faim, faute d'avoine.

Cléante, le fils, est amoureux de Mariane. Elise, la fille, aime Valère, lequel est faussement au service d'Harpagon comme intendant, le temps de trouver moyen de marier la belle. Harpagon lui, aime l'argent de Mariane et veut lui aussi la marier.

Cette édition de 1890 est en français très lisible et facilement accessible. La pièce, écrite en 1667 est assez longue (5 actes) et compte plusieurs monologues dont le plus connu commence par : Au voleur ! Au voleur ! A l'assassin ! Au meurtrier ! Justice, juste ciel ! Je suis perdu, je suis assassiné, on m'a coupé la gorge, on m'a dérobé mon argent. (...)

On y retrouve aussi quelques phrases célèbres : *Il faut manger pour vivre et non vivre pour manger*, *Quand il y a à manger pour huit, il y en a bien pour dix* et ma préférée : * je me meurs ; je suis mort ; je suis enterré.*

Le dénouement de la pièce est typique, on retrouve des parents perdus, on se marie et les vilains recoivent leurs coups de baton.

Le seul problème de cette édition est que les notes de l'éditeur a) ne sont pas très nombreuses et b) se retrouvent uniquement à la fin, sans lien hypertexte. Sinon, c'est un texte superbe qui faire rire malgré le caractère très sérieux des sujets abordés.

I loved l'avare. I am french and I read it for my french class. I loved the way it was written. As I was reading it, I could see the actors portraying the roles of Harpagon amongst others in my head. I loved the humour and the wit included in the play. I loved this book and I would recommend it to everybody who loves a good classic. The only problem I had was with the language. Sometimes it was hard to understand because it was written in old french but definitions were included. If you love classic litterature, humour and theatre, get this book.

I loved this book. As I was reading it, I could see the actors performing the play in my head. The caracters were so true. Espacially Harpagon. The greedy old man who only thinks about himself you want to hit at times. Especially when he speaks the last line of the play. I recommend this book to anyone who loves classic litterature, humour and theatre and if you understand french, of course.

Cette comedie constitue l'epure du dialogue molieresque et souligne que chez moliere, tout ou presque procede du dialogue: l'enchainement des idees, la plupart des effets comiques, et la rapidite de la progression de l'intrigue

You could make the ”comedy” funnier cause it ain't that funny , I would give it 5 stars if you could stop going: -Cléante- , -Valère- etc.

( Now , I'm only 9 but I read better than a 6-7 grader.)
