AP Reading List – Book-A-Day: The Misanthrope

The MisanthropeAuthor:  Moliere

Category:  Drama

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “A comedy of manners that pokes fun at how we behave in public and in private.  Read this and embrace the flawed human you are.”

Ethan: “In The Misanthrope, Moliere takes a common archetype, the grumpy and negative person, and makes it his own. I’m astounded at how much seventeenth century humor still translates so well for a modern audience.”
