Eugénie (1805–1848) and Maurice (1810–1839) de Guérin

Guérin, Eugénie and Maurice de (gā-ra‘). French diarists and prose-writers; sister and brother. Eugénie was born in Languedoc, Jan. 11 (?), 1805; died there (?), May 31, 1848. Maurice was born Languedoc, Aug. 5, 1810; died there, July 19, 1839. The rare and somewhat hectic genius of the brother, enforcing the sister’s active participation, led to their joint literary career. The ‘Journals’ and ‘Letters’ comprise the result of this partnership. (See Critical and Biographical Introduction).
