Moliere's 1662 comedy "L'ecole des femmes" is considered by critics to be among his finest work.

Reviews - What do customers think about Moliere: L'Ecole des Femmes, Student Ed. (Focus Student Editions) (French Edition)?
classic work, good guide May 23, 2009
Moliere's play is of course a classic, and there's a lot you can get out of it. I like these student editions because they have some beginning info about context and style and extensive footnotes in the actual text to explain archaic vocabulary or references that the average English-speaker would not understand. It would've been a lot harder to understand the play without these helpful notes. Still, there were some times when the footnotes explained something that was obvious while neglecting something I found confusing. Overall, the best version for students of French.
