Pierre Mael

Summary: Pierre Maël is the collective pseudonym of two French authors of adventure and sentimental novels for young people: Charles Causse (1862-1904) and Charles Vincent (1851-1920). A great success in bookshops at the beginning of the 20th century, the author's novels fell into disuse after the Second World War, which marked a change in children's literature. Pierre Maël was one of the leading authors of the Hachette publishing house, which reissued abridged versions of some of their novels until the 1950s. Charles Vincent : He was born in 1851 in Nudjuffgur, in the French Indies, and died in 1920. After the death of Charles Causse, he wrote under his patronymic of the reeditions of the novels of Pierre Maël. Charles Causse :Born in 1862 and died in 1904, he never wrote under his patronymic. He is the father of another author of adventure novels: Jean d'Agraives. Both of Breton origin, fervent Catholics and legitimists, their work - which includes 94 titles - is divided into two categories: novels for boys and novels for girls. Pierre Maël's name is associated with a particular form of literature, that of books for school fairs and prizes.
