André Theuriet


French poet and novelist.

Theuriet studied law in Paris and entered the public service, attaining the rank of chef de bureau, before his retirement in 1886. He published in 1867 the Chemin des bois, a volume of poems. M. Theuriet gives natural, simple pictures of rustic and especially of woodland life, and Théophile Gautier compared him to Jaques in theforest of Arden. The best of his novels are those that deal with provincial and country life. Theuriet received in 1890 the prix Vitet from the French Academy, of which he became a member in 1896. He was made a Chevalier de la Legion d'honneur in 1879, and was made an Officier de la Legion d'honneur in 1895.

He died on 23 April 1907.

Source Notes

Originally "Gauquelin, vol 6" was quoted for 6am.

On 12 March 2014, Sy Scholfield checked the online Yvelines registry where birth certificate no. 24 (p. 394/572) states 6:30am. Scholfield was prompted to check the records after seeing "six heures et demie du matin" quoted from the B.C. in "La correspondance historique et archéologique" (1908), p. 274.
