9781331472148: The Women of the French Salons (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Women of the French Salons

It has been the aim in these studies to gather within a limited compass the women who represented the social life of their time on its most intellectual side. And to trace lightly their influence upon civilization through the ave nues of literature and manners. Though the work mav lose something in full ness from the effort to put so much into so small a space, perhaps there is some compensation in the opportunity of comparing, in one gallery. The women who exercised the greatest power in France for a period of more than two hundred years. The impossibility of entering into the details of so many lives in a single volume is clearly apparent. Onlv the most salient points can be considered. Many who would amply repay a careful stud 9 have sim~ ply been glanced at, and others have been omitted altogether. As it would be out of the question in a few pages to maize an adequate portrait of women who occupy so conspicuous a place in history as Mme. De Maintenon and Mme. De Stai'l, the former has been reluc'lantly passed with a simple aflusion. And the latter outlined in a brief résumé not at all proportioned to the rela tive interest or importance of the suhjefl.
