Jules Girardin

Summary: Jules Girardin was a French writer, born January 4, 1832 in Loches (Indre-et-Loire) and died October 26, 1888 in Paris. He sometimes adopted the pseudonym J. Levoisin. He studied in Châteauroux. A student of the Ecole Normale Supérieure, he became an accredited grammar and literature professor. He then practiced in several high schools before settling in Versailles high school. He has collaborated with the European Review, the Mosaic, the Magasin Pittoresque, the Youth Journal and the Revue des deux Mondes, for which he provides many news. He distinguished himself to posterity by writing novels for youth illustrated with engravings, and was, it seems, successful at the time. His works are above all of moral significance and his favourite heroes are the weak and the underprivileged. With a definite talent expressed in observations full of delicacy, he combined stories with fortifying morality. Some of his works have been translated into English, Swedish, Italian and Spanish. We owe him a free adaptation of the Adventures of the Baron of Münchhausen.
