Pierre Gringore

Pierre Gringore (1475? – 1538) was a popular French poet and playwright. He was born in Normandy, at Thury-Harcourt, but the exact date and place of his death are unknown. His first work was ''Le Chasteau de Labour'' (1499), an allegorical poem.

From 1506 to 1512, he worked as an actor-manager and playwright in Paris. He is best known for the satirical plays he wrote during this period for the ''Confrérie des Enfants Sans Souci'' or ''Sots'', a famous comedic acting troupe. While in Paris he became a favorite of Louis XII, who employed the troupe to poke fun at the papacy. Tension between France and Rome was building during this period, eventually resulting in the Italian Wars and the formation of the Catholic League in 1511. Gringore wrote several scathing indictments of Pope Julius II, for example, ''La Chasse du cerf des cerfs'' (1510) and the trilogy ''Le Jeu du Prince des Sots et Mère Sotte''.

Following his Parisian period, he wrote a mystery play about Louis IX, ''Vie Monseigneur Sainct Loys par personnaiges'' (1514), for the Paris guild of masons and carpenters. Some scholars consider this to be his masterpiece. Provided by Wikipedia
