Sidonie Gabrielle Colette, born in Saint Sauveur-en-Puisaye / Burgundy in 1873 and died in Paris in 1954, is considered a modern classic of French literature. She led an eventful life and left behind an extensive body of work, which found inclusion in the famous Bibliothèque de la Pléiade.
Jean Cocteau writes:
“The women in the stories of the perceptive Colette are incisive creations of an incorruptible observer who knows how to tell of her own life with psychological clarity, ironically and poetically, or quite directly – as in the evocative memories of her own childhood in Burgundy. “Madame Colette’s style is lush. He uses salt sparingly, avoids the too-fatty, takes pepper, garlic, various herbs, and doesn’t shy away from letting you bite unexpectedly on those little red pimentos, one of those little gnome caps that are so sharp you can’t cover your mouth.”
