In seventeenth-century Sicily, a clever valet named Mascarille tries to help his boss Lélie win the girl of his dreams—only to find that Lélie is a monumental dunce who ruins every one of his intricate schemes. Undaunted, Mascarille invents progressively wilder plots, only to see his best-laid plans go very awry in Molière's The Bungler. Translated by Richard Wilbur. 

An L.A.
