The grisette became a frequent character in French fiction but have been mentioned as early as in 1730 by Jonathan Swift. The term, compare The grisette in poetry, signifies qualities of both flirtatiousness and intellectual aspiration, George du Maurier based large parts of Trilby on his experiences as a student in Parisian bohemia during the 1850s.
