Following patronage by a group of French aristocrats, he secured the favour of the king, Louis XIV. Moliere's works, many of which were masterpieces of comedy, included L'Ecole des femmes (1662), Tartuffe ou L'Imposteur, (1664), Le Misanthrope (1666), L'Avare (1668), Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme (1670), and Le Malade imaginaire (1673).
