About Tartuffe

“Tartuffe” by Molière is a play about the story of a man who falls victim to misdirected adoration. There is a trouble-knocking at the house of Orgon. Madame Pernelle, his mother, believes that the family is becoming depraved and decadent. Orgon had recently taken in Tartuffe, who is a beggar but also a holy man. The family sees Tartuffe as hypocritical and as a con artist. When Orgon gets back from the country, he is obsessed with the man (Tartuffe) and would rather hear more about him than paying attention to his ailing wife. Cleante, the brother-in-law, tries to talk to him about Tartuffe but his efforts are fruitless since Orgon keeps praising Tartuffe. Below is a complete overview of the story.
