About this work
Warner, op. cit., suggests that the 'Lustucru' ('L'eusses-tu cru?' - Would you have believed it?) satires in mid-seventeenth century France can be traced to an emergent feminism in the Paris salons. Writers and poets like Madeleine de Scudéry were also satirised by Molière in 'Les femmes savantes' and 'Les précieuses ridicules'
