Jean-François Ducis (1733–1816)

Ducis, Jean-François (dü-sē’). A French dramatist (1733–1816); born at Versailles. His adaptations of Shakespeare, all conformed to the classic traditions of the French stage, were very successful. His first original play ‘Abufar, or the Arab Family,’ met with hearty approbation.
