Émile Faguet


French literary historian and moralist who wrote many influential critical works revealing a wide range of interests.

Faguet was educated at Poitiers and at the École Normale in Paris. He served as drama critic (1888–1907) for the Journal des Débats, was appointed to a chair at the Sorbonne in 1890, and was elected to the French Academy in 1900. He contributed extensively to major French journals and published many monographs and volumes of essays. Faguet was a vigorous, argumentative, and provocative critic with an essentially traditionalist approach. He excelled at analyzing ideas but was less concerned with purely aesthetic values, and his literary judgments tended to lack sensitivity. Despite these defects, his influence was considerable in his time.

He died 7 June 1916 in Paris, aged 68.
