Synopsis

Two young people, Henriette and Clitandre, are in love, but in order to marry, they must
overcome an obstacle: the attitude of Henriette’s family. Her sensible father and uncle
are in favour of the marriage; but unfortunately her father is under the thumb of his wife,
Philaminte. And Philaminte, supported by Henriette’s aunt and sister, wishes her to
marry Trissotin, a scholar & and mediocre poet with lofty aspirations, who has these
three women completely in his thrall. For these three ladies are ‘learned’, their
obsession in life is learning and culture of the most pretentious kind, and Trissotin is
their special protégé and the fixture of their literary salon. To sum it up in one line, we
can say ‘learning can make great fools’.
