Trology[edit]

"Dom Juan" is the last part in Molière's hypocrisy trilogy, which also includes The School for Wives and Tartuffe.

I do not understand this. Why is L'école des femmes part of the hypocrisy trilogy and which author spoke about hypocrisy trilogy. I'm literature student, but I never heard about it and it doesn't seem logical, L'école des femmes is not about hypocrisy. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.110.206.17 (talk) 07:36, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

Comment[edit]

Not being a litterature expert myself, but being spanish and with good knowledge of the french culture I find this Dom Juan/Don Juan explanation a bit funny. As far as I know, "Don" comes from "dominus" as much as Dom, Moliere seems to have merely translated the spanish Don. Had the spanish title been "El señor Juan", would you find "Monsieur Juan" a provocative translation ?

'Freds's indignation'- Plot Summary

I think this is a mistake. Is the text refering to Sganarelle?

Omissions in plot summary[edit]

The plot summary needs work.

Midway through, the plot summary says "Dom Juan and Sganarelle come across the tomb of the Commandant that Dom Juan killed". This killing has not been mentioned in the summary before, though one would think it would be the worst of his crimes. CharlesTheBold (talk) 21:36, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

references[edit]

I deleted the first reference, because the pdf-file linked to doesn't exist anymore. --80.153.190.96 (talk) 21:26, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

You should just tag with {{dead link}} so that other editors can look for it. Jezhotwells (talk) 17:40, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Errors[edit]

I have been looking at the (very detailed) French Wikipage devoted to the play, and it's clear that this English page is riddled with errors. The play did not have a one-night run at its premiere; it was not a "costly failure". I urge the editors to consult the French page in question and revise the English one accordingly.
