The main character wasn’t as misanthropic as I expected. Rather he was just rigid in his expectations of honest thought and deed. He abhorred anyone who was at all two faced. I can’t say I blamed him. Yet it was such a fake society that the result was he didn’t like anyone. There’s a romantic triangle and it’s all very comic. Also the whole play is done in rhyme, which got to me after awhile. It’s a quick read though and easily ups one’s list of classics read.
