Summary (From the publisher):

Arnolphe, a narrow-minded merchant hoping to marry his young ward, Agnes, is obsessed with the fear of being made a cuckold. But all his artful plans serve only to speed him towards the fate he is so desperate to avoid.

This highly popular play, satirising ridiculous male attitudes about women, aroused as much hostility as critical acclaim when it was performed in Paris in 1662. Molière himself first played the hapless merchant, and this believable character in an all too believeble predicament both startled and delighted his public.
