"Le Farce de Maître Pierre Pathelin" montée pour la première fois au XVe siècle est la grande ouvre pionnière de la farce théâtrale un genre qui a atteint son apogée dans le "Chapeau de paille d'Italie" d’Eugène Labiche. Autrement dit, ce n'est pas une pièce de théâtre pour les intellectuelles. Il semble viser plutôt un public composé des imbéciles en état d'ébriété.
On y trouvé des dialogues entre époux qui rassemblent aux échanges entre le Père et la Mère Ubu ; un étranger qui écorche le frança

Cette pièce de théâtre est courte, c'est pourquoi je l'ai lue en une seule journée. Elle est très simple (sauf si elle n'est pas traduite en français actuel) et elle est plutôt amusante. J'ai beaucoup apprécié les notes de l'éditeur, qui permettent de comprendre plusieurs expressions.

Read it for a French lit. class, so I'm sure my attitude towards this book is slightly jaded. I understand the historical importance of these sort of works (believe me, I know...), but this just wasn't that fun to read. I'm sure a staged version would be much better (especially at times when the dialogue gets going), but the golden moments are few (though it is a short read, so a one-day go through would probably be a fun thing to do).

Menos mal que el tranfuga ese de Pathelin recibió su merecido. Entre él, la mujer y el pastor me daban ganas de matarlos.

Too much "grivoiserie." Lawyer jokes are funny, but too many and they get boring, even during the renaissance.

Je pensais trouver ça emmerdant, mais finalement je me suis amusée. La pièce est vivante et j'imagine qu'avec de bons comédiens elle se défend bien sur scène.

La Farce de Maître Pierre Pathelin is a short play from the Late Middle Ages. It seems pretty insubstantial and I would never have read it if not required for a French class, but it is actually riotously funny. There are important historical themes here to be sure—the uncertainty of currency and purchasing on credit, the dichotomy between urban and country life, and the consequences of usurping conventional language among them—but what most impressed me is how current the humor remains today.

Cette pièce est extrêmement prévisible. C'est un petit livre qui est vite lu, et c'est une lecture encore plus rapide si l'on considère qu'à partir d'un moment on a déjà un peu tout compris et ce que l'on lit ne rajoute pas grand chose à l'histoire globale que l'on a déjà compris

EDIT
Peut-être qu'à l'époque ce genre de livre n’existait pas, mais maintenant je crois qu'on a déjà l'habitude de ce genre d'histoire, et celle-ci ne nous surprendra pas

I am not very keen on french literature but so far, I have one only thing to say, if there's something french I know besides Verne, that is a must for every science fiction lover, that's Molière. While being a little bit more adult in the use of language, this work had the same kind of humor, the sly character who can get away with his plan never ceases to make the reader laugh.

Una de las mejores farsas medievales y, según tengo entendido, del teatro cómico francés anterior a Molière. La primera obra que llevé a los escenarios.

Somewhat funny, but with very outdated humor, some of which was a bit bawdy for my tastes. Also very short.
