His legal training was to stand him in good stead as his plays often aroused the anger and hatred of many prominent social groups including the medical profession and the clergy. Moliere was continually surrounded by controversy and his works were often banned. This volume contains new versions of Moliere's plays by distinguished translators Ranjit Bolt and Gerard Murphy.
