Mèrimèe, Prosper

Mèrimèe, Prosper, a great French writer, born in Paris; abandoned law, to which he was bred, for literature; became under Louis Philippe inspector-general of historical documents, and travelled in that capacity in the S. and W. of France, publishing from time to time the fruits of his researches; he wrote in exquisite style stories, historical dissertations, and travels, among other works “Guzla,” “Chronicles of Charles IX.,” the “History of Don Pedro, King of Castile,” “Letters to an Unknown”; he was a man of singularly enigmatic character (1802-1870).
