First performed in 1664, it is considered one of Moliere’s best comedies. The story of a man who falls prey to misplaced adoration. A man named Tartuffe fools Orgon, the wealthy head of the household into thinking that he is good and righteous. Orgon takes in Tartuffe and treats him as if he was of blood relation and is blinded by his façade. Tartuffe tricks Orgon into signing over the deed to his house. But Tartuffe is arrested under orders from the king, who recognized Tartuffe as a wanted criminal and Orgon’s property is restored to him.
Banned History of Tartuffe
Tartuffe was first performed for King Louis XIV of France in 1664. Although favorably received by the King, the play was banned from public performance due to the strong objections of influential church leaders who considered the play an attack on the very foundations of religion. The Tartuffe controversy constituted the most intriguing and public scandal of the day, involving the monarchy, the church and the arts. Throughout the ban, the play enjoyed great popularity. Because of the scandal, Molière was often invited to give private showings of the play at upper-class salons. Molière resubmitted the play in 1667. Again, it was banned. Finally, after more revisions, the ban was lifted in 1669 and Molière enjoyed the most successful public run of any of his plays. Tartuffe is considered to be Molière’s masterwork and one of the great dramas of western literature.
