This chapter discusses rhetoric in two plays from the 17th century: Molière's Tartuffe and Rancine's Britannicus. The chapter also looks at a play of a seemingly different kind, which was written nearly three centuries later. In Beckett's En attendant-Godot, it appears that rhetoric needs to be reassessed.
