French playwright and novelist, one of the founders of the “problem play”—that is, of the middle-class realistic drama treating some contemporary ill and offering suggestions for its remedy. He was the illegitimate son (fils) of the dramatist and novelist Alexandre Dumas, called Dumas père.
While Dumas père had written colourful historical plays and novels, Dumas fils specialized in drama set in the present.
He was elected to the French Academy in 1874 and in 1894 he was awarded the Légion d'honneur.
