Paul Bourget (Paul Bourget)

Paul Bourget

Writer. Born in Amiens, France, he was a novelist known as a master of psychology in the pre-World War I period. He began his career as a poet, then went on to publish his early novels, such as “Cruelle Énigme” (1885), “Un Crime d’amour” (1886) and “André Cornélis” (1887). Bourget’s most noted novel “Le Disciple” (1889), portrays traditional morality rather than modern scientific theory. His later works, including “L’Étape” (1902) and “Un Divorce” (1904), were centered in support of the church, traditionalism, nationalism and monarchy. He died at age 83 in Paris, France.
