Poquelin Molière, 1622-167, J. B. (n.d.). Sganarelle or the Self-Deceived Husband. Retrieved from

Introductory Notice: Six months after the brilliant success of the Precieuses Ridicules, Moliere brought out at the Theatre du Petit-Bourbon a new comedy, called Sganarelle, ou le Cocu Imaginaire, which I have translated by Sganarelle, or the self-deceived Husband. It has been said that Moliere owed the first idea of this piece to an Italian farce, Il Ritratto ovvero Arlichino cornuto per opinione, but, as it has never been printed, it is difficult to decide at the present time whether or not this be true. The primary idea of the play is common to many commedia dell? arte, whilst Moliere has also been inspired by such old authors as Noel Du Fail, Rabelais, those of the Quinze joyes de Mariage, of the Cent nouvelles Nouvelles, and perhaps others.
