Bourgeois attitudes are ridiculed in his comedy Boubouroche (1892, tr. 1961); official red tape is satirized in his sketches Messieurs les ronds-de-cuir (1893, tr. The Bureaucrats, 1928); and the pitfalls of justice in the courts are hilariously exposed in Hortense, couche-toi (1897, tr. Hold on, Hortense, 1961) and L’Article 330 (1900, tr. 1961).
