'''Molière''' was born in 1622 as Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, 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"''.

* CelebrityParadox: Might be the TropeMaker. In ''The Imaginary Invalid'', which satirizes the medicine of the era, the brother of Argan (the hypochondriac main character) asks him if he would like to see a Moliére play. Argan angrily berates Moliére for making fun of doctors.

* GoldDigger: Beline, Argan's second wife in ''The Hypochondriac'' (also translated as ''The Imaginary Invalid''), is a two-faced woman: she flatters and pampers her husband, but schemes all the time, trying to figure out how to get all his money after his death, and she wants to deprive his two daughters of their share.



* MayDecemberRomance / WifeHusbandry: Subverted, in that it's usually young girls who want nothing to do with the old men who are being forced on them.

* AuthorTract: Moliere really, ''really'' hated doctors and the clergy, and had very snarky comments on bourgeois. He let ''everyone'' know about it. Why'd you think that ''Theatre/{{Tartuffe}}'' was banned for several years?

* CatchPhrase: One of Molière's favourite source of comedy involves a character repeating the same line over and over again in one scene.

Legend has it he died on the stage, in 1673, playing the main role in ''The Imaginary Invalid''.[[hottip:*: In fact, he collapsed on stage, was taken home and died there a few hours later.]]
