The Misanthrope | Act 2, Scene 6 | Summary

Share
Share

Summary

In this brief scene, Basque makes his third appearance in the act, announcing that a gentleman in an official uniform has arrived to see Alceste without delay.

Analysis

Because Basque's prior two appearances have annoyed Alceste, it is reasonable to predict that his latest announcement will produce the same effect, but the audience is left in suspense as to the identity and intentions of the latest visitor.
