Orgon: And, when I went out, he quickly preceded me, To go to the door, to offer holy water (Act I, scene 6)
Entry by Amber, Janyah, Elian, Sally, Liah, Daysi
In this picture we can see a cross behind the two men, meaning they may possibly be in a church. They both also wear puffy clothes, In this scene, Cleante brings up the topic of Tartuffe not being such a noble man, and that Orgon shouldn’t admire him so much. Orgon insists on Tartuffe being a holy, pure man. He tells stories about his first time meeting Tartuffe, and how he was astonished by such a humble and honest man in church. Orgon finds Tartuffe’s actions to be impeccable; However, Cleante is not convinced of Tartuffe being what he believes he is. He sees Tartuffe as a “hypocrite”. A person that shows his good actions so proudly is solely doing it to keep up a reputation, not because it’s coming from his heart.
