    hey i'm studying l'avare. i have a few questions.....
    1. Décrivez Seigneur Anselme. Peut-on dire qu'il ressemble à Harpagon? Justifiez votre réponse.
    2. Comment Valère et Cléante réagissent-ils devant l'avarice d'Harpagon? A votre avis, les deux jeunes hommes ont-ils des points en commun?
    3. Identifiez et décrivez les malentendus et les duperies dans cette pièce. A votre avis, pourquoi Molière les a-t-il inclus?
    4. Quel est le lien entre l'argent et les relations amoureuses dans cette pièce? Etant donné ce lien, à votre avis la fin de la pièce est-elle optimiste?
    5. Pourquoi Harpagon accuse-t-il Cléante de manquer de respect envers lui? Jusqu'à quel point le comportement de Cléante est-il justifié?
    6. Donnez des exemples des différentes sortes de comédie qu'on trouve dans L'Avare. Molière réussit-il à faire rire les spectateurs tout au long de la pièce? Justifiez votre réponse.

    hope this helps a bit.
    good luck!

    hi i'm doing l'avare and paris as my topics and texts. l'avare revision i way better than paris! i've watched the film of l'avare 4 times in english so i totally get the storyline now. are you learning direct quotes or will you just refer to the scenes? i got a past exam question from my teacher about the role of the characters of la fleche and maitre jacques - that sounds hard, but if it's about the main characters it shouldn't be too bad. what themes run through the play besides love, money and relationships? happy revising! (yeah right!)

    I haven't been able to revise much for french literature up until today, due to my other exams so I have a lot of revision to do tomorrow!! Another theme that occurs in the play besides the ones that you mentioned, is deception. I am not learning direct quotes, just scenes and as many examples as possible. We have never been told in class to learn quotes, plus I don't have much time now! Good luck!
