About Madeleine de Scudéry

  • Madeleine de Scudéry (15 November 1607 – 2 June 1701), often known simply as Mademoiselle de Scudéry, was a French writer.
  • Her works also demonstrate such comprehensive knowledge of ancient history that it is suspected she had received instruction in Greek and Latin.
  • In 1637, following the death of her uncle, Scudéry established herself in Paris with her brother.
  • Georges de Scudéry became a playwright.
  • Madeleine often used her brother's name to publish her works.
  • She was at once admitted to the Hôtel de Rambouillet coterie, and afterwards established a salon of her own under the title of the Société du samedi (Saturday Society).
  • For the last half of the 17th century, under the pseudonym of Sapho or her own name, she was acknowledged as the first bluestocking of France and of the world.
  • She formed a close romantic relationship with Paul Pellisson which was only ended by his death in 1693.
  • She never married.
