Marie Sévigné

Today, according to the Writers' Almanac, is the birthday of Marie de Rabutin-Chantal, marquise de Sévigné. The funny thing is she's on a list of people I was going to look up as her name appears in In Search of Lost Time. Born into a noble family in 1626, Marie's famous for her letters to her daughter which were so wonderful they were circulated and eventually published. She knew the letters were circulated so she wrote knowing the public would see them. on Marie Sévigné
