Adelaide-Marie-Emilie Filleul, known as Adelaide, Countess of Flahault de la Billarderie, then Adelaide de Souza, or Madame de Flahault, and Madame de Souza, born on May 14, 1761 in Paris and died in the same city on April 19, 1836, was a French writer, moralist and salon-goer.
“With ‘Adèle de Sénange' which was her first great success, the post-revolutionary feminine novel embarked on a new path. Distinguishing itself from Richardson’s sentimental novels, it offers a new genre for the novel that also uses private life as its inspiration: the intimist novel. It would therefore be appropriate to include it in studies relating to the development of the fictional genre.
