Albert Thibaudet (1874, Tournus, Saône-et-Loire - 1936, Geneva) was a French essayist and literary critic. A former student of Henri Bergson, he was a professor of Jean Rousset. He taught at the University of Geneva, and was succeeded in his post by Marcel Raymond.


Thibaudet's reputation increased through 1920s and 1930s, in part due to his regular articles in the Nouvelle Revue Française and his numerous books.[1]
