SCARRON, PAUL


SCARRON, PAUL
   a French humourist, writer of the burlesque, born, of good parentage, in Paris; entered the Church, and was for some years somewhat lax-living abbé of Mans, but stricken with incurable disease settled in Paris, and supported himself by writing; is chiefly remembered for his "Virgile Travesti" and "Le Roman Comique," which "gave the impulse out of which sprang the masterpieces of Le Sage, Defoe, Fielding, and Smollett"; married in 1652 Françoise d'Aubigné, a girl of fifteen, afterwards the famous MADAME DE MAINTENON (q.v. MAINTENON, FRANÇOISE D'AUBIGNÉ); was a man who both suffered much and laughed much (1610-1660).
