In Moličre’s classic comedy Arnolphe, a rich merchant, is under the delusion that he can create a perfect marriage for himself by creating the perfect wife. He raises a young orphan.

His plans, however, are quickly undone by the handsome young Horace who, despite everything Arnolphe tries, takes Agnes’s education into his own hands—especially when it comes to love.
