Molière Four Plays - Molière, Carl Milo Pergolizzi, Jean Baptiste Poquelin Moliere is a mocking master. He skewers the pretentious (The Bourgeois Gentleman, The Affected Damsels), the greedy (The Miser), and pretty much everyone in The Doctor in Spite of Himself. It’s rare that reading a play seems as smooth as a novel, but Moliere ‘s plays are unencumbered and slip by effortlessly.
