Extrait: Je n'ai pas besoin de retracer ici la vie de M. l'abbé Jérôme Coignard, professeur d'éloquence au college de Beauvais, bibliothécaire de M. de Seez, Sagiensis episcopi bibliothecarius solertissimus, comme le porte son épitaphe, plus tard secrétaire au charnier Saint-Innocent, puis enfin conservateur de cette Astaracienne, la reine des bibliothèques, dont la perte est à jamais déplorable. Il périt assassiné, sur la route de Lyon, par un juif cabbaliste du nom de Mosaide (Judaea manu nefandissima), laissant plusieurs ouvrages interrompus et le souvenir de beaux entretiens familiers. Toutes les circonstances de son existence singulière et de sa fin tragique ont été rapportées par son disciple, Jacques Menetrier, surnomme Tournebroche parce qu'il était fils d'un rôtisseur de la rue Saint-Jacques. Ce Tournebroche professait pour celui qu'il avait l'habitude de nommer son bon maître une admiration vive et tendre. C'est, disait-il, le plus gentil esprit qui ait jamais fleuri sur la terre. Il rédigea avec modestie et fidélité les mémoires de M. l'abbé Coignard, qui revit dans cet ouvrage comme Socrate dans les Mémorables de Xénophon. Attentif, exact et bienveillant, il fit un portrait plein de vie et tout empreint d'une amoureuse fidelité. C'est un ouvrage qui fait songer à ces portraits d'Erasme, peints par Holbein, qu'on voit au Louvre, au musée de Bale et a Hampton-Court, et dont on ne se lasse point de gouter la finesse. Bref, il nous laissa un chef-d'oeuvre.

Read information about the author

Ebook Les Opinions de M. Jérôme Coignard read Online! Awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1921 "in recognition of his brilliant literary achievements, characterized as they are by a nobility of style, a profound human sympathy, grace, and a true Gallic temperament."

Anatole France began his career as a poet and a journalist. In 1869, Le Parnasse Contemporain published one of his poems, La Part de Madeleine. In 1875, he sat on the committee which was in charge of the third Parnasse Contemporain compilation. He moved Paul Verlaine and Mallarmé aside of this Parnasse. As a journalist, from 1867, he wrote a lot of articles and notices. He became famous with the novel Le Crime de Sylvestre Bonnard (1881). Its protagonist, skeptical old scholar Sylvester Bonnard, embodied France's own personality. The novel was praised for its elegant prose and won him a prize from the French Academy. In La Rotisserie de la Reine Pedauque (1893) Anatole France ridiculed belief in the occult; and in Les Opinions de Jerome Coignard (1893), France captured the atmosphere of the fin de siècle.
He was elected to the Académie française in 1896.
France took an important part in the Dreyfus Affair. He signed Emile Zola's manifesto supporting Dreyfus, a Jewish army officer who had been falsely convicted of espionage. France wrote about the affair in his 1901 novel Monsieur Bergeret.
France's later works include L'Île des Pingouins (1908) which satirizes human nature by depicting the transformation of penguins into humans - after the animals have been baptized in error by the nearsighted Abbot Mael. La Revolte des Anges (1914) is often considered France's most profound novel. It tells the story of Arcade, the guardian angel of Maurice d'Esparvieu. Arcade falls in love, joins the revolutionary movement of angels, and towards the end realizes that the overthrow of God is meaningless unless "in ourselves and in ourselves alone we attack and destroy Ialdabaoth."
He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1921. He died in 1924 and is buried in the Neuilly-sur-Seine community cemetery near Paris.
In 1922, France's entire works were put on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum (Prohibited Books Index) of the Roman Catholic Church.[2:] This Index was abolished in 1966.
