    An interesting change to an Ancient story I'll have to read the Golden Asse by Apuleius to see how they compare The 18th century poetswriters seemed to have a bit of a different take on the RomanGreek Gods so I'm curious as to how this has been changed

    Wow Pretty dramatic for Moliere but he did have Corneille's help in writing this play More dancing and music than in his strictly comicalsatirical playswhich is good because the long speeches DO get a bit tedious This must have been an amazing spectacle when staged I just hope they used an androgynous actor for Love Eros That would have been hot

    Well nothing spacial to say about this play of Moliere Semms like a fast improvisation for Louis XIV with a lot of dansers and fanfars You can almost feel the presence of this old stype pompous speaking Interesting to read to feel that Did not find a lot of interesting things to say
