  Jean de La Fontaine - Wikipedia
Nonostante fosse di spirito indipendente, visse quasi tutta la sua vita sotto la protezione dei nobili dell'epoca.
Dopo pochi anni (1658) si separò dalla moglie e si trasferì a Parigi, dove prese a condurre una vita piuttosto oziosa entrando sotto la protezione di Nicholas Fouquet, politico in auge a quell'epoca che amava circondarsi di letterati; per compiacerlo, la Fontaine scrisse per lui poemi, madrigali, commedie, libretti d'opera ecc.
La Fontaine pubblicò anche alcuni poemi, tra cui "Gli amori di Psyche" e "Adonis"; scrisse racconti tratti da Ariosto e da Boccaccio e novelle ("Contes et nouvelles en vers"); molti suoi scritti furono ispirati alle opere di Esopo, Orazio, Rabelais e Machiavelli.

 Nicholas Boileau biography
The most distinguished of French critics in the age of Louis XIV, known as the "legislator of Parnassus." He was in criticism an incarnation of correct, commonplace common sense, a schoolmaster in careful workmanship, sworn enemy of all false sentiment and preciosity, such as marred the poetry and fiction of his immediate predecessors.
He was born in Paris, Nov. 1, 1636, studied first for the priesthood, then for the law, but found his place instinctively in the rather Bohemian literary company of Molière, La Fontaine, Racine, the philologist and realistic novelist Furetière, and the witty Ninon de l'Enclos.
He has been studied by generations because his is the art that can be learned, as Pope, his best pupil, learned it, though his own Horace might have taught him that the true poet could not be made.

This gross calumny, that a man whose life had been passed in apostolic poverty had sold his pen, and that the advocate of toleration was a salaried agitator on behalf of the papacy, was voiced by permission, nay, by encouragement, of the leaders in Geneva.
Thus betwixt night and morning Calvin's and de Beze's vague assertions that Castellio was a focus of the most dangerous heresies had been given substantial support by the disclosure of his intimacy with David Joris and Bernardino Ochino.

According to critics like Walter Benjamin and Nicholas Boyle, it was the tragic events depicted in The Sorrows of Young Werther, combined with its extraordinarily effective depiction of solipsistic subjectivity, which led to the novel's almost unprecedented success.
Nicholas Boyle observes of Goethe’s novel: “It was because it so perfectly understood and represented the pathology and the crisis of contemporary sentimentality that Werther became a European success” Boyle 1: 168.

 [ Michael Servetus Institute] [Trial of Servetus]
The allegation against Servetus was not submitted by Calvin in person, but through a front man named Nicholas de la Fontaine.
On October 26 of 1553, the Council issued its judgement against Servetus ordering him to be burnt alive in the hill of Champel.
The judgment stated that Servetus was guilty for having printed "twenty-three or twenty-four" years ago a book (“De Trinitatis Erroribus”) that contained blasphemies against the Trinity and for having corrupted Christians and spread his antitrinitarian heresy in a later work (“Christianismi Restitutio”).
