EMILE FAGUET (1847-), French critic and man of letters, was born at La Roche sur Yon on the 17th of December 1847. He was educated at the normal school in Paris, and after teaching for some time in La Rochelle and Bordeaux he came to Paris. After acting as assistant professor of poetry in the university he became professor in 1897. He was elected to the academy in 190o, and received the ribbon of the Legion of Honour in the next year. He acted as dramatic critic to the Soleil; from 1892 he was literary critic to the Revue bleue; and in 5896 took the place of M. Jules Lemaltre on the Journal des debats. Among his works are monographs on Flaubert (1899), Andre Chenier (5902), Zola (1903); an admirably concise Histoire de la litterature francaise depuis le X VIl e siècle jusqu'd nos jours; series of literary studies on the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries; Questions politiques (1899); Propos litteraires (3 series, 5902-5905); Le Liberalisme (1902); and L'Anticlericalisme (1906).
