About the Author
Molière, born Jean-Bapiste Popquelin in 1622, is one of the greatest writers of French and European literature. His comedies are still performed today around the world. One of the most accomplished American poets of his generation, Richard Wilbur (1921-2017) was also a prolific translator of French and Russian literature, including the plays of Molière and Racine, and the poetry of Valéry, Villon, Baudelaire, and Akhmatova. He was U.S. Poet Laureate in 1987-88 and was the recipient of numerous prizes and awards, including two Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry, the National Book Award for Poetry, the Wallace Stevens Award, the Frost Medal, and the Bollingen Prize. Adam Gopnik has been a staff writer at The New Yorker since 1986. In 2013 he was awarded the medal of Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Minister of Culture.
