About the Author: Hélisenne de Crenne

Hélisenne de Crenne was a French novelist, epistolary writer and translator during the Renaissance. Critics generally agree that "Helisenne de Crenne" was the pseudonym of Marguerite Briet (c. 1510, Abbeville - after 1552), a French gentlewoman married to Philippe Fournel de Crenne. It is however also generally recognized that this attribution remains somewhat speculative, as it is based on limited extant documentation and extrapolation of the "biographical" elements from her work.

Marguerite Briet was a noblewoman from Abbeville, but wrote in Paris in the 1530s and 1540s. She was well educated, learning enough Latin to be able to translate Virgil works. She married Philippe Fournel, sieur de Crenne, but they separated financially.[2]

Her identity was established in 1917 by the French literary scholar L. Loviot. Although there is no proof that Marguerite Briet is the author of the entirety of the works signed "Hélisenne de Crenne", few critics doubt the attribution. A character named "Hélisenne" is present in her three books.
