  • Abstract: This paper discusses two plays that put Molière on stage, Élomire hypocondre by Le Boulanger (1670) and L’Ombre de Molière by Brécourt (1674). They echo the polemics raised by L’École des femmes, through a melancholy representation of the playwright, which conveys a negative or positive vision of the artist, as a sick or inspired figure. Le Boulanger provides a poor image of the playwright but his comparison of Molière with Don Quixote makes it possible to perceive a wiser side of the character.
