The greatest writer of French classic comedy, the 17th-century playwright Molière was one of the most brilliant satirists in the history of literature. His keen observations and barbed wit punctured the pretensions of the society of his day and focused a brilliant light on the universal vices of humanity. The Imaginary Invalid, one of his funniest and most incisive satires, is also among the most performed worldwide and perennially studied in world literature courses.
