Georges de Scudéry
BiographyHe is the older brother of Madeleine de Scudéry with which he will write several novels published under his only name. He chooses initially the military career, but in 1630 gives up it to devote itself entirely to the writing. In 1637, at the time of the quarrel having followed the publication of the Cid of Crow, it lines up resolutely in the camp of the adversaries of the part.
It will profit a long time from the protection of the cardinal of Richelieu and, after the disappearance of the minister, it adopts a careful neutrality with regard to the cardinal Mazarin, which appoints it governor of the fort of Our-Lady-of-the-Guard with Marseilles (1644-1647) and a master's certificate of the galères confers to him, purely honorary load though lucrative.
Having taken party for the Large Cop during the Sling, it is exiled in Normandy and is fixed at Rouen, where it marries in 1657 the rich person Marie-madeleine (or Marie-Francoise) of Martinvast (1631-1712), which will maintain a long correspondence with Roger de Bussy-Rabutin. He is elected member of the French Academy in 1650.
