More > Frédéric-Charles Bargone (27 April 1876, Lyon – 21 June 1957, Paris), was a French author of novels set in such exotic locations as Istanbul, Saigon, and Nagasaki. One of his novels, Les civilisés (The Civilized) won the Prix Goncourt for 1905. He was elected to a chair at the Académie française on 26 March 1935. Initially, however, he imitated his father, an infantry colonel who served in the French colonies: enlisting with the naval academy in 1894, he was made lieutenant in 1906 and was promoted to captain during 1918. He resigned the next year to concentrate on his writing career.His works have largely fallen from favour, even among French readers.Perhaps the best known reference to Farrère today is the perfume "Mitsouko" by the long-lived perfumer Guerlain.

More > August 1862 – 4 December 1923) was a French novelist, journalist and politician. Spending some time in Italy, he became a figure in French literature with the release of his work The Cult of the Self in 1888. In politics, he was first elected to the Chamber of Deputies in 1889 as a Boulangist and would play a prominent political role for the rest of his life.Barrès was associated in his literary works with Symbolism, a movement which had equivalence with British Aestheticism and Italian Decadentism, indeed he was a close associate of Gabriele d'Annunzio representing the latter. As the name of his trilogy suggests, his works glorified a humanistic love of the self and he also flirted with occult mysticisms in his youth.
