Daudet, Léon


Daudet, Léon
(1868-1942)
   journalist, writer
   The son of Alphonse daudet, Léon Daudet was born in Paris and, after abandoning medical studies, went into journalism, contributing articles to La Libre Parole and working especially on L'Action française with Charles maurras (1907). He served as a deputy from 1919 to 1924 and, affected by his son's mysterious death, held the government responsible and in turn was convicted of defamation. Imprisoned (1927), he escaped to Belgium. Pardoned, he returned to France in 1929 and published virulent editorials in L'Action française. Daudet left several works, including Les Morticoles (1894, against doctors and medical schools), Le Monde des images (1919, a psychopathologic study against Sigmund Freud), and others describing the intellectual and political life during the Third Republic (Fantômes et Vivants, 1914; L'Entre-deux-guerres, 1915; Charles Maurras et son temps, 1928). He was named to the Académie Goncourt in 1897.
