About the Author

Ranjit Bolt was born in Manchester in 1959 of mixed English and Indian parentage. His parents are both former English teachers and his uncle was the Oscar-winning playwright and screenwriter, Robert Bolt. He read classics at Oxford, then worked as an investment advisor for eight years before his translation of Corneille’s comedy, The Liar, was performed at the Old Vic, in 1989, to huge critical acclaim. He soon gave up his job to concentrate on translation and has been working as a translator for the stage ever since, having translated many classic plays, particularly those of Molière and Corneille. Oberon Books publishes his translations of Tartuffe, The Grouch, The Misanthrope, The Miser/The Idiot, Lysistrata, Cyrano de Bergerac, Hercules and The Merry Wives of Windsor.
