Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Georges Feydeau, (8 December 1862 - 5 June 1921) was a French playwright of the era known as the Belle poque. He is remembered for his many lively farces. Georges Feydeau was born in Paris, the son of novelist Ernest-Aim Feydeau and L ocadie Bogaslawa Zalewska. At the age of twenty, Feydeau wrote his first comic monologue in earnest. He found his first success four years later with Tailleur pour dames (Ladies' Dressmaker, 1889). That same year Feydeau married Marianne Carolus-Duran, the daughter of the famous portrait painter Carolus-Duran. To Feydeau, the marriage brought wealth that would sustain him until he found greater success. The marriage lasted 15 years after which the couple underwent a judicial separation and were formally divorced in 1916.show more
