Philippe Quinault (fēlēp´ kēnō´), 1635–88, French dramatist. His tragedies and comedies are affected and undistinguished, but he found an outlet for his talent in the 14 opera librettos which he wrote for Lully. The charm and delicacy of his style is clearly apparent in his masterpiece, Armide (1686), a libretto used first by Lully and later by Gluck.
