"I came to see that a line that simply says 'I love you,' at the right point in the show, is entirely adequate, that a great deal of verbal sophistication is not necessarily called for. . . . Speak-ability is so important. That's something I slowly had to learn about poetry, and something I had to work on always with Moliere."-Richard Wilbur Lovers' Quarrels is Moliere's second full-length verse play, animated with deception and tangles of love. Richard Wilbur is a two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize and a former Poet Laureate of the United States. His verse translations of Moliere's plays have been performed for audiences throughout the world.
