Orgon is the man who has everything. Money, power, a beautiful family. But lately he's been questioning the point of it all. When he invites Tartuffe into his perfect household, he unleashes a whirlwind of deception and seduction that threatens everything. With Orgon under Tartuffe's spell, can his family outwit this charismatic trickster? Are Tartuffe's wild claims truth or fiction? This mysterious stranger may not be quite the villain he appears. John Donnelly's ferocious new version of Moliere's comic masterpiece looks at the lengths we go to find meaning - and what happens when we find chaos instead. Tartuffe, the Imposter opened at the National Theatre, London, in February 2019.

'Crimp has treated Moliere the way Moliere had treated Plautus: he has seized on the timeless core of the story and recast it with wit and respect. The result is both a genuinely new version of Moliere's play and a homage to it. The writing it cool, sharp and ferociously funny... A thrillingly sophisticated modern version of a classical play.' Sunday Times Alceste abhors hypocrisy and the well-rehearsed, sycophantic pleasantries of the chattering classes. But having savaged Covington - a theatre critic who thinks he can write plays - Alceste goes on to attack Jennifer, the woman he really loves. What if his determination to tell the truth proves more destructive than their instinct to avoid it? Moliere's greatest comedy, Le Misanthrope (1666), with its fierce argument between conformity and non-conformity, is reworked in this blistering contemporary version. Martin Crimp's version of The Misanthrope premiered at the Young Vic Theatre, London, in February 1996 and was revived at the Comedy Theatre, London, in November 2009.

Insulin resistance (IR) and elevated blood pressure are two key features of the metabolic syndrome, which play an important role in the development of secondary cardiovascular complications. In this book, the effects of insulin resistance on the various vasoactive pathways are explored, which affect the equilibrium between vascular relaxation and constriction. Furthermore, the interaction between oestrogen, testosterone and insulin signalling-dependent changes in vascular reactivity and blood pressure are discussed. Also addressed in this book are the mechanisms underlying reciprocal relationships between insulin secretion, insulin resistance and inflammation in the pathological state and in its subsequent improvement. Moreover, the current concepts in understanding the underlying risk factors contributing to insulin resistance are examined, focusing on the role of magnesium deficiency that emerges as potential pathogenic key related with decreasing insulin sensitivity. In addition, it is widely accepted that metabolic syndrome is related to cardiovascular disease and that insulin resistance is one of the causes of metabolic syndrome. The authors discuss thiazolidinediones (TZDs), a class of antidiabetes agents, as a means to improve endothelial dysfunction, prevent atherosclerosis, and significantly reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

"A mischievous new translation by the poet Richard Wilbur, "The Bungler"] is great good fun and should open the gate for the play to be presented with the regularity it deserves."--Bruce Weber, "The New York Times"

"My notion of translation is that you try to bring it back alive. Speak-ability is so important. . . . I came to see that a line that simply says 'I love you, ' at the right point in the show, is entirely adequate, that a great deal of verbal sophistication is not necessarily called for."--Richard Wilbur

Poet Richard Wilbur's translations of Moliere's plays are loved, renowned, and performed throughout the world. This volume is part of Theater Communications Group's new series (with cover designs by Chip Kidd) to complete trade publication of these vital works of French neoclassical comedy. "The Bungler" is Moliere's first recognizably great play, and the first to be written in verse. The charming farce is set in Sicily and born of the great Italian tradition of the commedia dell'arte: Loyal valet Mascarille schemes to win the lovely Celie away from rival Leadre, and into the arms of his master Leslie. Moliere himself originated the role Mascarille, self-described as "the rashest fool on earth," who naturally bungles the job along the way.

Richard Wilbur is a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner and a former Poet Laureate of the United States. His publications include six volumes of poetry and two collections of selected verses, a collection of prose, and two books for children.

Speak-ability is so important. That's something I slowly had to learn about poetry, and something I had to work on always with Moliere."--Richard Wilbur

Lovers' Quarrels is Moliere's second full-length verse play, animated with deception and tangles of love.

Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price Alceste, the misanthrope, hates all mankind, and despairs of its hypocrisy and falseness. He believes that the world could be perfected if people were more honest with each other. But when his honesty starts to make him enemies, and the target of malicious gossips, it is his world and his life which suffer. He alienates his love, Celimene, and reproaches her coquettish, flirty ways; he is summoned before the court of marshals to defend a candid opinion about Oronte's terrible poetry - a case which he knows he will lose despite the justness of the cause. He begins to realise that the only way to be left out of gossip is to get out of society - but will Celimene go with him, or is she just like everybody else? Translated and introduced by Stephen Mulrine

Affection I can endure, affectation I abhor. Empty phrases, meaningless gestures of faked good-will. These affable dispensers of embraces make me ill. Disgusted with French society where powdered fops gossip in code and bejewelled coquettes whisper behind fans, poet Alceste embarks on a one-man crusade against fakery, frippery and forked tongues. But could the woman he adores be the worst culprit of them all? And in this rarefied world will his revolution prove merely revolting? Considered by many to be Moliere's best work, The Misanthrope was first performed in 1666 in Paris by the King's Players. Following the huge successes of Tartuffe and The Hypochondriac master wordsmith Roger McGough once again dips his quill into a Moliere classic in this mockery of manners and morals set amid seventeenth-century French aristocracy and written in verse.
