About Author

Theophile Gautier

French author and critic Theophile Gautier was born on August 30, 1811 in France. He was well-known in the French literary scene in the middle of the 19th century and was connected to the Romantic literary movement. The Romantic movement had a significant impact on Gautier's early poetry and fiction, and he was well renowned for his vivid depictions of fantastical and exotic places. In addition to writing on art, he supported the Realist movement, which aimed to depict reality unexaggeratedly. The book "Mademoiselle de Maupin," which relates the tale of a woman who poses as a male to seek a sexual connection with another woman, is perhaps Gautier's best-known work. The book is regarded as a classic of French literature and a groundbreaking example of gender-fluid fiction. Other important works by Gautier include the drama "One of Cleopatra's Nights," which examines themes of love, jealousy, and treachery, and the short story collection "One of Cleopatra's Nights and Other Fantastic Romances," which contains stories of adventure and magical realism. Up to the time of his death on October 23, 1872, in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, Gautier continued to compose and publish. He is regarded as a significant character in French literature and a forerunner in the creation of the contemporary novel.
