Moli&egrave (born Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, 15 January 1622 17 February 1673) was one of the many children of the French royal tapestry-maker. He tried to follow his father's footsteps and later, to become a lawyer, but his heart wasn't in it, and he ended up as one of the greatest French playwrights, and a protégé of King Louis XIV. He's so big in French culture that the language itself is nicknamed ''"La langue de Molière"''. In many ways, he's a rough French equivalent to [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Shakespeare]], though his stature isn't quite as towering (since unlike Shakespeare, Molière wrote more or less only comedies, while the Bard wrote tragedies, histories, "problem plays" and standalone poems).
