"The Doctor in Spite of Himself" is
the broadest of Moiere's farces. Writ-
ten originally in prose as "Le Medecin
malgre lui" it was put into dramatic
form and first performed in 1666.
IMoliere himself first played the role
j of Sganarelle. Tihe hulk of Moliere's
works is composed of farces dealing
4with the life of country France. In-
teir spersed among these are several
t ragedies occasioned by a succession
of tragic events in Moliere's life. Wal-
do Frankr says that "France has pro-
duced greater genius than Moliere :
but none more typical of her essential
vir'tues, none so inclusive of those bal-
anced qualities which have won her
among EurQpean nations the name of

a type and an essence: he achieves the
