1607, Nov 151701, Jun 2
a French writer. She was the younger sister of author Georges de Scudéry. Her lengthy novels were the delight of Europe, commended by other literary figures. Artamène, which contains about 2.1 million words, ranks as the longest novel ever published. Her novels derive their length from endless conversations and, as far as incidents go, successive abductions of the heroines, conceived and told decorously. Contemporary readers also enjoyed these novels because they gave a glimpse into the life of important society figures. These figures were often disguised as Persian, Greek, and Roman warriors and maidens.
