Smart? Thoughtful? Manipulative? Deranged? All of these can be applied when talking about a man that seems not to care and yet always get what he wants; and that’s the sort of man Molière was. Talking with him was the sensory equivalent of sipping on a warm cup of tea. Civility and manner were values very important to him.
To better understand what Tartuffe is, you need to understand Molière himself. First off, was Molière is real name? Obviously not. Richard Morgane was is given name back in Auch, France, where he was born. He was educated by his mother mostly, who taught him everything from geography to arithmetic and most importantly: French Culture. As he grew up, he acquired a taste for French theater and especially one playwriter: Molière. Richard had the chance to study in Paris where he started studying French culture. Richard was intelligent though, and quickly realised that his passion wouldn’t lead to money, and so he kept his interest in theater and Molière as a hobby.
What started as a random decision would lead him on a completely different path of life. Indeed, he started, and finished, a degree in accounting. He liked especially the auditing aspect as well as financial crimes – a correlation you could make with his taste for the theme of Justice in many of Molière’s work.
This new path led to immigrate to Montreal, Canada, seeking new opportunities. His quest in the new world led him to join the RCMP as an intelligence analyst, specializing in anti fraud measures. Richard loved his new life in Canada, working in a dynamic environment, bringing justice to society and traveling the unbelievably great landscape of Canada. His love for French theater didn’t stop at the custom though, and he kept attending various shows, mostly ones based on the writings of Molière.
