Comic treatment : Molière and the farce of medicine

    Research output: Journal PublicationsJournal Article (refereed)Researchpeer-review

    Abstract

    When Comedy, Music and Ballet step forward at the end of L'Amour medecin, the audience learns that in Moliere's theater the farcical passage from sickness to health is much more than a theme. Claiming to have a real therapeutic value, the three arts ask to be recognized as the grands medecins, and present themselves as an alternative to a dubious and rather mercenary medical profession.
