The play is widely known for its piercing commentary on hypocrisy and impiety. The light-hearted wit and lucid prose have strengthened the play, thus making it highly popular among reviewers and audiences. The major characters of this play have left their indelible mark on literature and theater. The credit of giving the word “Tartuffe” to English lexicon goes to this play. Tartuffe denotes a person who is highly hypocrite, particularly in feigning religious virtues. The history shows that when the play was first performed before King Louis XIV, it was specially performed to amuse the king’s mistress.
