Abstract:

"Marie Anne de Vichy-Chamrond, marquise du Deffand (1697 ? 23 September 1780) was a French hostess and patron of the arts ... The principal friendships of her later years were with the duchesse de Choiseul and with Horace Walpole, the latter becoming the strongest and longest-lasting of all her attachments. In this period, she developed qualities of style and eloquence of which her earlier writings had given little promise. In the opinion of Sainte-Beuve the prose of her letters ranks with that of Voltaire as the best of that classical epoch without excepting any even of the great writers."--Wikipedia.
