Moliere, possibly one of the greatest French play writes, has produced a brilliant comedy. This is one of the first examples of a trickster figure thinking ahead. He (Scapin) uses deceit, flattery, deductive reasoning and fast paced language to develop his trick. The plot is quite comical, lending itself to be read again and again. ( )

Scapin constantly lies and tricks people to get ahead. He is an arrogant, pompous man who acts as if nothing were impossible for him. However, he is also a diplomatic genius. He manages to play the other characters off of each other very easily, and yet manages to keep his overall goal - to help the young couples - in sight.… (more)
