1625, Jun 161701, Aug 31
a French scholar, author, poet and playwright whose best-known work today is Le Théâtre François, a description of French Theatre in the 17th century. Samuel’s play Le Cercle des Femmes is widely regarded as one of the main sources of Moliere’s masterpiece Les Précieuses Ridicules, and his influence in general on the "Golden Age of French Drama" has in the past been seriously underestimated. He played a substantial part in 'discovering' Moliere when he gave his travelling troup a glowing review in his book Lyon dans son lustre in 1656.
