Poet, novelist, sometime member of Mademoiselle de Montpensier's circle and correspondent of the Mercure Galant, Cantenac (Bordeauz 1630?-1714) was notorious in his own time but has only recently become the subject of serious study. Satyres nouvelles was first published in 1706 in Amsterdam. It contains seventeen poetic "satyres" together with various other poems and is the last of six collections by Cantenac published in his lifetime.
