   Avare (L').  The plot of this comedy is as follows:  Harpagon the miser and his son Cléante (2 syl.) both want to marry Mariane (3 syl.), daughter of Anselme, alias don Thomas d'Alburci, of Naples.  Cléante gets possession of a casket of gold belonging to the miser, and hidden in the garden.  When Harpagon discovers his loss, he raves like a madman, and Cléante gives him the choice of Mariane or the casket.  The miser chooses the casket, and leaves the young lady to his son.  The second plot is connected with Elise (2 syl.), the miser's daughter, promised in marriage by the father to his friend Anselme (2 syl.); but Elise is herself in love with Valère, who, however, turns out to be the son of Anselme.  As soon as Anselme discovers that Valère is his son, who he thought had been lost at sea, he resigns to him Elise; and so in both instances the young folks marry together, and the old ones give up their unnatural rivalry.Molière: L'Avare (The Miser), 1667.
