Anne-Thérèse de Lambert is remembered both for the Paris salon which she ran during the early decades of the eighteenth century, which was highly influential for French literature and culture, and for her writings. These include advice-writings, a treatise on the status of women, and essays on friendship, old age, and other popular topics. They were just as influential in English translation as in their original form.
