Anne "Ninon" de l'Enclos also spelled Ninon de Lenclos and Ninon de Lanclos 10 November  — 17 October was a French author, courtesan , and patron of the arts. Born Anne de l'Enclos in Paris on 10 November ,  she was nicknamed "Ninon" at an early age by her father, Henri de l'Enclos, a lutenist and published composer, who taught her to sing and play the lute. When Ninon's mother, Marie Barbe de la Marche , died ten years later, the unmarried Ninon entered a convent , only to leave the next year.
For the remainder of her life, she was determined to remain unmarried and independent. Returning to Paris, she became a popular figure in the salons , and her own drawing room became a centre for the discussion and consumption of the literary arts.
It was during this period that her life as a courtesan began. These men did not support her, however; she prided herself on her independent income. Yet such was the authority of this wanton, that no man dared fall out with his successful rival; he was only too happy to be allowed to visit as a familiar friend," Saint-Simon wrote. In , Ninon took up with Louis de Mornay, the marquis de Villarceaux, by whom she had a son, also named Louis. She lived with the marquis until , when she returned to Paris.
This life less acceptable then as it would become in later years and her opinions on organized religion caused her some trouble, and she was imprisoned in the Madelonnettes Convent in at the behest of Anne of Austria , Queen of France and regent for her son Louis XIV. Not long after, however, she was visited by Christina , former queen of Sweden. Impressed, Christina wrote to Cardinal Mazarin on Ninon's behalf and arranged for her release. She was also noted for her wit; among her numerous sayings and quips are "Much more genius is needed to make love than to command armies" and "We should take care to lay in a stock of provisions, but not of pleasures: these should be gathered day by day.
During this time she was a friend of Jean Racine , the great French playwright. Saint-Simon wrote that "The lady did not like her to be mentioned in her presence, but dared not disown her, and wrote cordial letters to her from time to time, to the day of her death".
Ninon eventually died at the age of 84, as a very wealthy woman. To the end, she "was convinced that she had no soul, and never abandoned that conviction, not even in advanced old age, not even at the hour of her death. Ninon de l'Enclos is a relatively obscure figure in the English-speaking world, but is much better known in France where her name is synonymous with wit and beauty.
Saint-Simon noted "Ninon made friends among the great in every walk of life, had wit and intelligence enough to keep them, and, what is more, to keep them friendly with one another.

Открылось окно - такие же цифровые часы, как на ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ, которые должны были показывать часы и минуты работы Следопыта. Однако вместо этого Сьюзан увидела нечто совершенно иное, от чего кровь застыла в жилах.
У Беккера застрял комок в горле. Росио была куда смелее своего клиента. - Не может быть? - повторил он, сохраняя ледяной тон. - Может, пройдем, чтобы я смог вам это доказать. - Не стану вас затруднять, - ухмыльнулась она, - благодарю за предложение. Но все же кто. Беккер держался своей легенды: - Я из севильской полиции.
