    1. Molière Brian Bedford Molly Bryant Kevin Gudahl Dakin Matthews says:

      Jean Baptiste Poquelin, also known by his stage name, Moli re, was a French playwright and actor who is considered one of the greatest masters of comedy in Western literature Among Moli re s best known dramas are Le Misanthrope, The Misanthrope , L Ecole des femmes The School for Wives , Tartuffe ou l Imposteur, Tartuffe or the Hypocrite , L Avare ou l cole du mensonge The Miser , Le Malade imaginaire The Imaginary Invalid , and Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme The Bourgeois Gentleman.From a prosperous family and having studied at the Jesuit Clermont College now Lyc e Louis le Grand , Moli re was well suited to begin a life in the theatre Thirteen years as an itinerant actor helped to polish his comic abilities while he also began writing, combining Commedia dell Arte elements with the refined French comedy.Through the patronage of a few aristocrats including the brother of Louis XIV, Moli re procured a command performance before the King at the Louvre Performing a classic play by Pierre Corneille and a farce of his own, Le Docteur amoureux The Doctor in Love , Moli re was granted the use of Salle du Petit Bourbon at the Louvre, a spacious room appointed for theatrical performances Later, Moli re was granted the use of the Palais Royal In both locations he found success among the Parisians with plays such as Les Pr cieuses ridicules The Affected Ladies , L cole des maris The School for Husbands and L cole des femmes The School for Wives This royal favour brought a royal pension to his troupe and the title Troupe du Roi The King s Troupe Moli re continued as the official author of court entertainments.Though he received the adulation of the court and Parisians, Moli re s satires attracted criticisms from moralists and the Church Tartuffe ou l Imposteur Tartuffe or the Hypocrite and its attack on religious hypocrisy roundly received condemnations from the Church while Don Juan was banned from performance Moli re s hard work in so many theatrical capacities began to take its toll on his health and, by 1667, he was forced to take a break from the stage In 1673, during a production of his final play, Le Malade imaginaire The Imaginary Invalid , Moli re, who suffered from pulmonary tuberculosis, was seized by a coughing fit and a haemorrhage while playing the hypochondriac Argan He finished the performance but collapsed again and died a few hours later In his time in Paris, Moli re had completely reformed French comedy.

    2. I reviewed each of the plays acted on this audiobook individually, so this review just pertains to the quality of this audiobook.I enjoyed the contents of this book--Molière's most famous works, as well as some of his works that were popular in his day, were represented, and I feel like I got a very good sense of Molière's range and talent. I do think that he showed a strong desire to want to go tragic with some of his works, but I also felt that he often didn't quite have enough nerve to full [...]

    3. Moliere was a genius, and a funny genius to boot. I'm always a sucker for a banned book, or banned play as the case may be, and Tartuffe did not disappoint.

    4. I love the comedy, the rhyming of the verses, the mix of bits of wisdom with absurdity, and the freedom of the presentation. It all makes good listening.
