Madame de Sevigne made a significant contribution to the understanding of seventeenth-century France through her voluminous correspondence. The most famous epistoliere of the Splendid Century, the Marquise recorded important political events, religious controversies, wars and disasters, medical practices and the social and cultural life of the court of Louis XIV. She was a keen observer and brilliant writer; her literary style has been admired for over three hundred years.
