Riassunto: In a comic whirlwind of high style, La BÃªte tells the story of Elomire, a 17th century French playwright, and his touring acting troupe who have come to lead the high life due to the patronage of the fickle Prince of Conti. Sparks fly when Valere, a swaggering braggert with delusions of artistic grandeur, becomes the Prince's choice to join Elomire's troupe. It is a battle of wits and witticisms as the two face off in this outrageous commentary on the nature of art and the artist in society.

Dall'audiolibro: The patron of a troupe of seventeenth-century French actors foists on them a conceited, silly playwright and performer--to the outrage of their own writer, an intellectual and artist. Hirson's rhyming verse is sometimes strained or veers toward doggerel but can be clever, especially in the almost-contrapuntal use of many voices in unison or in rapid succession. Such sections are well read and well recorded. Some speeches go on too long, a problem for listeners, who have no actions or expressions to observe. The audible reactions of background characters--usually laughter--are sometimes uncomfortably overdone. But the principal actors are sharp, clear, and effective, making for a lively performance of a sometimes-amusing, sometimes-thoughtful, and only rarely tedious comic drama.
