Emile Augier


French dramatist.

Augier was very popular dramatist who wrote comedies extolling the virtues of middle-class life and who, with Alexandre Dumas fils and Victorien Sardou, dominated the French stage during the Second Empire (1852–70).

Augier was an unbending moralist, and all of his plays are to some extent didactic in purpose. His best-known play, Le Gendre de Monsieur Poirier (1854; “Monsieur Poirier’s Son-in-Law”), written in collaboration with Jules Sandeau, advocated the fusion of the new prosperous middle class with the dispossessed nobility.

His verse has excellent dramatic qualities, while the prose of his prose dramas is admirable for directness, alertness, sinew and a large and effective wit.

He was the thirteenth member to occupy seat 1 of the Académie française on 31 March 1857.

He died 25 October 1889, Croissy-sur-Seine.
