Paul Féval, père

1862 lithographic caricature of Paul Féval by [[Étienne Carjat]]. Paul Henri Corentin Féval, ''père'' (29 September 1816 - 8 March 1887) was a French novelist and dramatist.

He was the author of popular swashbuckler novels such as ''Le Loup blanc'' (1843) and the perennial best-seller ''Le Bossu'' (1857). He also penned the seminal vampire fiction novels ''Le Chevalier Ténèbre'' (1860), ''La Vampire'' (1865) and ''La Ville Vampire'' (1874) and wrote several celebrated novels about his native Brittany and Mont Saint-Michel such as ''La Fée des Grèves'' (1850).

Féval's greatest claim to fame, however, is as one of the fathers of modern crime fiction. Because of its themes and characters, his novel ''Jean Diable'' (1862) can claim to be the world's first modern novel of detective fiction. His masterpiece was ''Les Habits Noirs'' (1863–1875), a criminal saga comprising eleven novels.

After losing his fortune in a financial scandal, Féval became a born-again Christian, stopped writing crime thrillers, and began to write religious novels, leaving the tale of the ''Habits Noirs'' uncompleted. Provided by Wikipedia
