This paper examines "The Barber of Seville" and "The Marriage of Figaro," by Pierre Augustin Caron Beaumarchais. The paper examines the plays' commentary on tyranny and French aristocracy. The plots, characters, and themes of the two plays are also discussed and analyzed.
From the Paper:"Pierre-Augustin Caron Beaumarchais is known as the "One major French Dramatist during the late 18th Century". The two plays which preserve his name, "The Barber of Seville" and "The Marriage of Figaro" are the first two parts of a satirical trilogy. While his plays are comedic, they also criticize the nature of tyranny, and the French aristocracy's privileged position, and Beaumarchais' work is considered to have contributed to the French Revolution by openly discussing those ideas. In "The Barber of Seville", the young count is lovestruck and semi-heroic, although he needs the help of Figaro to free the girl from her governor."
