Monsieur Moliere's French Scenes by Don Druick
There are two Moliere stories in Monsieur Moliere's French Scenes. One is Moliere's play Le Malade Imaginaire, which I've translated and left essentially as Moliere wrote it. The other story is the story of Moliere and his acting company. the two stories intertwine: my characters play characters in Moliere's play. These two stories are, of course, the same story - and the result is a heartfelt comedy of pathos.
