French dramatist and man of letters.
Lavedan contributed to various Parisian papers a series of witty tales and dialogues of Parisian life, many of which were collected in volume form. In 1891 he produced at the Théâtre Français Une Famille, followed at the Vaudeville in 1894 by Le Prince d'Aurec, a satire on the nobility, afterward renamed Les Descendants.
He had a great success with Le Duel (Comédie-Française 1905), a powerful psychological study of the relations of two brothers. Lavedan was admitted to the Académie française in 1898.
He died 30 September 1940.
