Jean-Pierre Claris de Florian (1755 - 1794)
Jean-Pierre Claris de Florian was a French poet and romance writer. To modern readers, Florian is chiefly known as the author of pretty fables well suited as reading for the young, but his contemporaries praised him also for his poetical and pastoral novels. Florian was very fond of Spain and its literature, doubtless owing to the influence of his Castilian mother, and both abridged and imitated the works of Cervantes.
