6/23 The Learned Ladies
This Tuesday, JUNE 23rd, we will be reading THE LEARNED LADIES by Moliere.
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.
