Great Works Monday: Moliere's Tartuffe
Moliere’s most famous play, Tartuffe, created a big stir when it appeared in 1664—so much so, that King Louis the 14th banned performances of it.  Apparently people who move in high places can be a bit tetchy about the behavior called hypocrisy.  We’ll be much more liberally minded toward the play than was the French monarch, as we discuss it on Great Works Monday.—Original airdate: 2/1/2010
