Émile Pouvillon (1840–1906)

Pouvillon, Émile (pö-vē-yô‘). A French novelist; born at Montauban, 1840; died in 1906. His novel ‘Césette’ (1880), a tale of village life, won the Academy’s Lambert prize. It was followed by ‘Jennie’s John’ (1886); ‘The Blue Horse’ (1888); ‘Singing-Weeping’; and ‘Bernadotte,’ a cabinet drama,—an antithesis of Zola’s ‘Lourdes.’
