Jean-Fran ois Marmontel (July 11, 1723 - December 31, 1799) was a
French historian and writer, a member of the Encyclopediste
movement. He was born of poor parents at Bort, Limousin (today in
Corr ze). After studying with the Jesuits at Mauriac, Cantal, he
taught in their colleges at Clermont and Toulouse; and in 1745,
acting on the advice of Voltaire, he set out for Paris to try for
literary success. From 1748 to 1753 he wrote a succession of
tragedies (Denys le Tyran (1748); Aristomene (1749); Cleop tre
(1750); Heraclides (1752); Egyptus (1753)), which, though only
moderately successful on the stage, secured Marmontel's
introduction into literary and fashionable circles.
