Marie-Catherine de Desjardins de Villedieu produced over ten volumes of works that include plays, poetry, and narrative fictions. Today's critics attribute Villedieu with having created a new genre of literature, the "nouvelle galante", in which the author recounts a series of gallant episodes, rather than the heroic actions so popular in the adventure stories of the first half of the 17th century. An example of this new literary genre, "Les Amours des grands hommes" is a collection of four pseudo-historical nouvelles that relate the love adventures of four famous men.

Marie-Catherine de Villedieu, born Marie-Catherine Desjardins and generally referred to as Madame de Villedieu (1640 - 20 October 1683) was a French writer of plays, novels and short fiction.

Marie-Catherine de Desjardins de Villedieu produced over ten volumes of works that . Klein's timely translation is an attempts to remedy this situation. An example of this new literary genre, "Les Amours des grands hommes" is a collection of four pseudo-historical nouvelles that relate the love adventures of four famous men who lived in ancient times: Solon, Socrates, Julius Caesar, and Cato.

Her introduction gives detailed historical and critical contexts for these narratives.

Comme tous les grands hommes, Pythagore croit en son étoile

Comme tous les grands hommes, Pythagore croit en son étoile. Aucun chemin qui a conduit à la connaissance lui découragé, la peur de la mort ne pouvait pas le vérifier, car il voyait la vie au-delà. Like all great men, Pythagoras believed in his star. No path that led to knowledge disheartened him, the fear of death could not check him, for he saw life beyond. Au lieu de dénoncer ou de nier ce que d'autres proposent comme la vérité, les grands hommes nous offrent leur propre vérité.

Les Désordres de l’Amour is perhaps Madame de Villedieu's most well-known work in this genre.

Madame de Villedieu was born at Alençon, the second daughter of Guillaume Desjardins and Catherine Ferrand, who worked as a ladies' maid for the wife of duke Henri de Rohan-Montbazon. After the divorce of her parents in 1655 the fifteen-year-old girl was taken by her mother to Paris. She came under the protection of the duchess of Rohan (thanks to the poems she presented her). Louis XIV gave Madame de Villedieu a pension of 1500 livres. She was admitted to the Academy of the Ricovrati of Padua. Les Désordres de l’Amour is perhaps Madame de Villedieu's most well-known work in this genre.

His other works include travel books, essays, criticism and the autobiographical The Summing Up and A Writer’s Notebook. In 1927 Somerset Maugham settled in the South of France and lived there until his death in 1965. Other works by w somerset maugham. It is a great and important book, and a professed student of literature should certainly read it once through (I have myself read it from cover to cover twice in English and three times in Spanish), yet I cannot but think that the ordinary reader, the reader who reads for delight, would lose nothing if he did not read the dull.

Klein's book provides the opportunity to read in English the innovative narratives of an illustrious woman author who played a prominent role on the literary scene in France during the reign of Louis XIV. Marie-Catherine de Desjardins de Villedieu produced over ten volumes of works that include plays, poetry, and narrative fictions. Today's critics attribute Villedieu with having created a new genre of literature, the "nouvelle galante", in which the author recounts a series of gallant episodes, rather than the heroic actions so popular in the adventure stories of the first half of the 17th century. An example of this new literary genre, "Les Amours des grands hommes" is a collection of four pseudo-historical nouvelles that relate the love adventures of four famous men who lived in ancient times: Solon, Socrates, Julius Caesar, and Cato. Villedieu proposes to recount a personal and intimate version of their lives that represents these revered heroes in more realistic terms. This narrative process eventually would undermine the aristocratic representational system in 17th century France, and have far-reached effects on the 18th century gallant novel. First published in 1671, the stories were quickly translated into English in 1673 as "The loves of sundry philosophers and other great men". Very few English editions of Villedieu's works exist today. Klein's timely translation is an attempts to remedy this situation. Her introduction gives detailed historical and critical contexts for these narratives.
