Drama Classics: The World’s Great Plays at a Great Little Price

This is the story of the covetous old miser Harpagon, obsessively protecting his hoard of gold and neglecting his long-suffering children Cléante and Élise. Cléante is in love with Mariane, and Élise with the dashing Valère – now disguised as her father’s steward. These hopes for some kind of happiness away from Harpagon are dashed when he announces his own intention to wed Mariane – and moreover his skinflint selection of rich old suitors for his children. But it seems that Harpagon’s pinchpenny paranoia is finally catching up with him – his gold is missing, and this time it might really have disappeared for good…

Translated and introduced by Martin Sorrell
