This chapter deals with Ariste in L'École des maris, the brother of the foolish protagonist Sganarelle. It argues that Ariste's role allows Molière to combine moral issues with farcical structures, thus establishing his own new brand of comedy. It also argues that Ariste is less intimately embedded in the plot than subsequent raisonneurs will be.

Keywords:   Ariste, Sganarelle, moral issues, farce, plot, brother
