This chapter examines Madame de Villedieu's novel on the memoirs of the life of Henriette-Sylvie de Molière. The wife of the financier, Madame de Molière, was an attractive woman and had a good deal of wit. The Marquis de Birague was a man of noble lineage, gifted with many good qualities. This gallant man often visited Madame de Molière. At a time when the two believed her husband to be away taking care of responsibilities, Monsieur Antoine de Molière found them asleep next to each other in a small wood at one of his houses. Her husband had decided to avenge himself and that, in his heart of hearts, he had decided to make her a part of his vengeance. Thus, when Monsieur de Molière showed her affection, she responded in kind.
