Paul Stapfer

Paul Stapfer (1840–1917) was a French essayist, born in Paris, and educated at the Bonaparte Lyceum. After serving as tutor in the family of François Guizot, he became a professor at Grenoble. In 1883, he accepted a similar professorship at Bordeaux. Stapfer's essays are remarkable for their clarity of style, perfection of finish and accuracy of detail. He edited the ''Grands écrivains'' series. Among his works are: * ''Petite comédie de la critique littéraire de Molière selon les trois écoles philosophiques'' (1866) * ''Causeries guernesiaises'' (1881) * ''Laurence Sterne, sa personne et ses ouvrages (second edition, Paris, 1882) * ''Shakespeare et l'antiquité'' (1883), which revealed to anti-Stratfordians the depth of its subject's knowledge of Latin and his formidable acquaintance with Greek. * ''Goethe et ses deux chefs-d'œuvre classiques'' (1881) * ''Racine et Victor Hugo'' (1886) * ''Rabelais, sa personne, son génie, son œuvre'' (1889) * ''Montaigne'' (1894) * ''La grande prédication chrétienne en France: Bossuet, Adolphe Monod'' (1898) * ''Des réputations littéraires'' and ''Victor Hugo et la grande poésie satirique en France'' (1901) * ''Questions esthétiques et religieuses'' (1906) * ''Vers la vérité'' (1909)
