‘Monsieur de Pourceaugnac’, acted on October 6, 1669, is nothing but a farce. But Molière excels in farce as well as in higher comedy, and ‘Monsieur de Pourceaugnac’ is one of the best of its kind. The attacks upon the doctors of the time are not exaggerated. Molière acted the part of Mr. de Pourceaugnac.
