Paul Scarron

Paul Scarron (1610–60) was born in Paris, but spent much of his youth in Le Mans, where he became an abbot. His libertine lifestyle prompted a return to Paris, where he devoted himself to literature. Afflicted by a mysterious paralysis of his legs from his twenties, he died without being able to finish the third and final part of his masterpiece, The Comic Romance.
