Moliere is watching you!
With over 2000 years of history France has produced a few good men... And that includes, of course, Moliere whose magnificent statue (well, this one anyway, for I am sure there are thousand statues of him!) is to be seen on rue de Richelieu (2nd arrondissement), not far for the Comedie Française the "home" of French theatre. His real name was Jean-Baptiste Poquelin and he lived between 1622 and 1673. He wrote tens of plays and he is adored by the French, including me! To learn more about Moliere go to Wikipedia.
