The first work of Marguerite Briet, known as Helisenne de Crenne, was the moralizing prose narrative Les Angoisses douloureuses qui procedent d'amour, and it is, with good reason, recognized as one of the most significant texts of the early French Renaissance. Published first in 1538 (Paris: Denis Janot) and frequently re-edited up to 1560, it is a work on which critical attention has, quite rightly, focused over the last few decades as it is highly significant to an understanding of the narrative genre's development.
