Book description
A beautiful, charming young widow Marquise Marie de Rabutin-Chantal de Sevigne 1626 - 1695 wrote more than a thousand letters of the life in and near the court of Louis XIV. A male cousin called her "daft on the subject of virtue and honor." Her style and grace are captured as is an accurate portrayal of society, most to her daughter in Grignan and others of gossip with a circle of haute society friends in Paris.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0394414721, Hardcover)

This biography of Mme de Sevigne brings to life the world of seventeenth-century France, a mother and her daughter, a writer and her brilliant letters. The passion and the pathos of this correspondence brings us as close as we can come to the mind of a woman in the court of Louis XIV.
