Charles Guillaume Étienne (1777–1845)

Étienne, Charles Guillaume (āt-yen’). A distinguished French dramatist (1777–1845). His comedies give proof of fancy and constructive skill; ‘The Two Sons-in-Law’ is the best comedy of the imperial era, and not unworthy Molière. He composed many farces, vaudevilles, operettas, and spectacular pieces and operas: ‘Cinderella’ and ‘Joconde.’ He wrote a ‘History of the French Theatre.’
