Victor de LaPrade


French poet, critic and professor of literature. Laprade's subject was French provincial life, its culture, its piety, and its sober patriotism. Laprade's prose criticisms consist of classical and metaphysical studies, as well as wide-ranging commentary on European literature. He disliked irony and skepticism, which probably lead him to underrate 18th-century literature.

As a poet, he was a member of the Academie Francaise and from 1847, LaPrade was a Professor of French Literature at Lyons; but due to his political satire he was dismissed in 1861.

He died on 13 December 1883 in Lyon, France.
