"Born Jean-Baptiste Poquelin in 1622, the French playwright Moliere became one of the most influential dramatists of the 17th century. His comedies shaped the development of theater in Europe, inspired his contemporaries in England, and left a lasting dramatic legacy after his death in 1673. Moliere has also inspired a vast body of scholarship, and recent work has dispelled many of the myths surrounding his career. This reference provides English-speaking readers with a current and comprehensive guide to his life and works. Hundreds of A-Z entries cover topics related to his life, works, and theatrical career." "This volume relies on verifiable facts, giving scant attention to the romantic fiction surrounding the playwright. Many of the entries list works for further reading. A chronology outlines the chief events of Moliere's life and his contributions to the stage. The volume concludes with a bibliography."--Jacket

By concentrating on the multiple uses of paradox in Language, thought, and stagecraft, it updates Molière studies through the major philosophical research of the past twenty years, which have seen a resurgent recognition of Sextus`s role in early modern thought. Designed to be useful to students of theatre and philosophy as well as to French literature specialists, it enriches the interpretation of Molière
