valets de chambre tapissiers or The Blunderer The Love-Sick Doctor or The Pretentious Ladies Over the course of the next thirteen years, Molière worked feverishly to make his company the most respected dramatic troupe in Paris. (Eventually, they were awarded the coveted title "Troupe of the King.") He directed his own plays and often played the leading role himself. The Imaginary Invalid . He had insisted on going through with the performance in spite of the advice of his wife and friends saying, "There are fifty poor workers who have only their daily wage to live on. What will become of them if the performance does not take place?" He passed away later that night at his home on the Rue Richelieu. The local priests refused to take his confession, for actors had no social standing and had been excommunicated by the church. Nor would they permit him to be buried in holy ground. Four days later, the King interceded and Molière was finally buried in the Cemetery Saint Joseph under the cover of darkness.

AMATEUR THEATRICALS A STROLLING PLAYER Roman Comique enables us to realize in some measure the conditions of their existence; indeed, it is not improbable that this whimsical picture of itinerant players in the seventeenth centurya work destined to outlive the drollest of its author's farceswas suggested in part by a chance encounter with the Illustre Théâtre at Mans, where the scene of the story is laid. "Molière," writes a contemporary, "was neither stout nor too thin. He was rather above than below the medium height; his carriage was noble, his legs finely formed; he had a serious air and walked gravely. His complexion was dark; his nose and mouth were rather large; his lips a little thick, his eyebrows very black, and the changes of his facial expression incessant. As to character, he was gentle, kind and generous." Destin, the hero of the Roman Comique , is a man of similar stamp"sympathetic, refined in manner, brave, contemplative, amiable, a personification of pleasant insouciance, by turns grave and gray, full of noble impulses." Whatever may have been the source of Scarron's inspiration in this instance, the district particularly favored by Molière and his companions was the south and southeast of France, the heart of the territory in which the troubadours of old had sung.

10. Moliere
Summary of moliere's life and theatrical career.Category Arts Literature Drama Renaissance Molière......moliere. (Jean Baptiste Poquelin) France 1622 1672. moliere was Poquelin'sstage name, and the only name ever used for this writer.
Moliere (Jean Baptiste Poquelin) France 1622 - 1672 Moliere was Poquelin's stage name, and the only name ever used for this writer. Thus, Moliere is a pseudonym or pen name , which means a name other than his true name under which an author publishes his literary works Moliere's father, Jean Poquelin, was a successful craftsman. He was one of eight upholsterers who worked for the French king and royal family. Although Moliere had studied law and probably took a law degree in about 1641 at the age of 19, his father was a respectable and prosperous man who expected his son to take over his business and serve the king as he had. Poquelin and his wife, Marie Cresse, were to be disappointed. Moliere shocked his family by renouncing the business world and becoming an actor. According to legend, his mother's father had often taken him to theatrical performances, and this, perhaps, was when he learned to love the theater. However, actors in the 17th century were held in low esteem, classed with rascals and charlatans (tricksters/imposters), and were even denied Christian burial. For these reasons, Moliere's family regretted his decision. (Very probably the reason he acquired his pseudonym was to mask the relationship between himself and his family, thus sparing them the embarrassment of having an actor in their family.)

Molière Auteur le plus joué depuis la création de la Comédie-Française, figure tutélaire et symbole du théâtre français et de la troupe, Molière concentre dans son nom mémoire, renouvellement et jeunesse du répertoire de la Comédie-Française. Il dépasse l'histoire et l'anecdote. S'il n'a pas connu la Comédie-Française, sa vie d'homme de théâtre en a préparé la création. Fils de Jean Poquelin, valet de chambre et tapissier ordinaire de la Maison du Roi, Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, qui prendra plus tard le pseudonyme de Molière, fait d'excellentes études au Collège de Clermont (futur Lycée Louis-Le Grand), peut-être complétées par un peu de droit. Mais dès 1643, il renonce à l'avenir bourgeois que lui garantit la jouissance héréditaire de la charge paternelle pour s'associer par contrat avec neuf comédiens, dont Madeleine Béjart, et fonder la troupe de « l'Illustre Théâtre ». Après des débuts difficiles à Paris, Molière et ses comédiens, de 1646 à 1658, parcourent la province française comme les troupes ambulantes de son époque. Le 24 octobre 1658, la troupe de Molière est autorisée à paraître devant la Cour. Sous la protection de Monsieur, frère du Roi, les comédiens s'installent au Théâtre du Petit-Bourbon, qu'ils partagent avec les Comédiens italiens dirigés par le célèbre Scaramouche (Tiberio Fiorelli). C'est là, après de premiers essais en province (

20. Jean Racine: His Childhood And Early Career
A biographical account of French dramatist Jean Racinehis formative years, his early poems, and his relationship with the older dramatist, moliere.
JEAN RACINE: HIS CHILDHOOD AND EARLY CAREER This document was originally published in The Drama: Its History, Literature and Influence on Civilization, vol. 7 . ed. Alfred Bates. London: Historical Publishing Company, 1906. pp. 185-188, 196-198. Aethiopica , a story hardly suited to one of his age, angrily threw the book into the fire; whereupon the youth immediately procured another copy, read it to the last line, and then, carrying it to the sacristan, sullenly remarked, "You may burn this as well." But impatience of restraint was not accompanied by a disinclination to study; on the contrary, his progress was rapid enough to awaken sanguine hopes as to his future. In the matter of Greek scholarship, it would seem, he learned more than Lancelot could teach him, burying himself in the woods to pore over Euripides and Sophocles EARLY POEMS It soon became evident that he had no sympathy for his self-elected calling. Established for a time in Paris as an assistant to his guardian, he gave himself up to doubtful pleasures, fell into bad company, and in some of his letters went so far as to ridicule the pious forms of expression adopted by the Port Royalists. Moreover, new ideas and aspirations took possession of his mind. In honor of the royal marriage he wrote an ode entitled La Nymph de la Seine , unquestionably possessed of merit though disfigured by many faults. Chapelain was then arbiter of the royal bounties to men of letters, and Vitart sent him the manuscript. "Many of the stanzas," he wrote in reply, "could not be improved. If a few passages I have marked are set rightespecially one in which Tritons are placed in a riverthe ode will be a fine one." Racine, of course, made all the alterations suggested, and on the recommendation of Chapelain he received one hundred louis d'or from Colbert in the name of the king. This unexpected success disposed him to rely upon literature, but soon afterward, probably to avoid reproaches from Port Royal as to his mode of living and pursuits, he became the guest at Uzes of his mother's brother, Antoine Sconin, the vicar-general in that town, who wished to find him a benefice. Here he wrote his notes on the
