Two young people, Henriette and Clitandre, are in love, but in order to marry, they must overcome an obstacle: the attitude of Henriette’s family. Her father (Chrysale) and uncle (Ariste) are in favor of the marriage; but unfortunately her father is under the thumb of his wife, Philaminte, Henriette’s mother. And Philaminte, supported by Henriette’s aunt (Bélise) and sister (Armande), wishes her to marry Trissotin, a “scholar” and mediocre poet, who has these three women completely in his thrall. For these three ladies are “learned”; their obsession in life is learning and culture of the most pretentious kind, and Trissotin is their special protégé and the fixture of their literary salon.
