In theses satirical and symbolic stories the theme of blindness relates to each of the four stories very vividly. From the Enlightenment years of Moliere, Swift, and Voltaire, to the symbolic times of Flaubert, blindness played a big part in their different writings. Although they're from different time periods hey sill understood that people are blinded by many different reasons. Reasons like religion, politics, economics, love, and just for self. All or one of theses reasons can be seen as the character's weakness or blindness in theses four stories.
First, in reading Tartuffe a story of a religious hypocrite who weaseled his way into a mans life and because e was blind he almost lost everything. Tartuffe masks his real self and tried's to make everyone perceive him as a benevolent and pious person. Madam Perella , Oregon's mother was quoted saying on page 21 line 42 speaking of Tartuffe "and he practices what he preaches." This is far from the truth and finally exposed as the villain that he is. Orgon was blinded by Tartuffe, using religion as a cover-up to acquire his erotic notion of seducing Orgon's wife. He then replaced that with economic desires. Tartuffe ad only one goal from the very beginning a hat was to gin control of Orgon's life, taking his property, money, and home. Throuhout this story only Cleante was able to see through Tartuffe's blinding antics. Moliere went through great extent to help use in our blindness to unmask the terribly true religious hypocritical issues of his time.
