It is you, Seigneur Mercury! Who would have thought of you here, in that position? Well, feeling tired, and not being able to fulfil the different duties Jupiter ordered me, I quietly sat down on this cloud to await your coming.

You jest, Mercury: you do not mean it; does it become the Gods to say they are tired? Are the Gods made of iron? No; but one must always have a care for divine decorum. There are certain words the use of which debases this sublime quality, and it is meet that these should be left to men, because they are unworthy.

So entsteht grob gesagt ein total theatralischer Ehestreit und totale Verwirrung. Ich muss sagen, dass ich die Neckereien zwischen Cleanthis und Sosias mit am unterhaltsamsten fand und besonders bei Cleanthis oft laut loslachen musste.
Noch besser fand ich aber das Vorspiel zwischen der Nacht und Merkur. Ich habe so gelacht. Trotzdem finde ich, dass es im 3.

Denn dann ist auf einmal alles gut zwischen Amphityon und Alkmene. Die Ehre ist nicht beschmutzt, sondern gerade weil es ein Gott war, mit dem Alkmene ihr Lager teilte, soll alles vergessen sein. Was will man mehr? Ich glaube, dass dort die Komik noch viel besser als beim Lesen herauskommen wird.
The poets do what pleases them. It is not the only stupidity we have detected in these gentlemen. In order to act my part without discredit, I will rehearse it a little. JBP never ceases to amaze --and amuse! I feel inclined to make your acquaintance by slapping your face. To show courage against men who have none merits condemnation.
Amphitryon by Molière
All these, AND he had long hair. He was such a hottie and a wit: I prefer a convenient vice to a fatiguing virtue. Fifteen years of married life exhaust nonsense; we said all we had to say to each other a long time ago. That we should all do well to send all men to the devil; the best of them is not worth much. The very ending seemed a bit pressed and forced, but I still want to direct this, choreograph this, and design its costumes. It's a really short play, easy to visualize, and a riot. I must be a Moliere groupie. Mar 17, Dorottya rated it liked it Shelves: plays. I'm not saying it's a bad drama, but it leaves a lot to be desired.
I was soooo annoyed by the stupidity of almost all of the characters, especially Sosias and Amphitryon. They even admit to themselves both that there is another one of them existing somehow, and they still forget about it when they meet each other or "each other", and instead of stopping and thinking which one it could be, they take everything for granted.
It was also pretty disappointing that Mercury and Jupiter chose to reveal themselves so abruptly, without any real reason, or if there was any, it was not written in the play. Especially in the case of Jupiter - he supposedly loves Alkmene, there was not a single scene about him getting bored with her and wanting to chase another lady It does not make any sense. However, there were some really funny comic parts, especially from Sosias.
