Frederick Tristan, (Jean-Paul Frederick Baron Tristan) (born 11 June 1931 Sedan) is a French writer.

Life[edit]

He was sent on a mission to Laos, Vietnam, China (1964–1986).

He is married to Marie-France Tristan, a specialist on poet Giambattista Marino.

In 2000, he explained his work in a series of interviews with the critic Jean-Luc Moreau.

In 1952, he participated in research conducted by Joel Picton. From 1983 to 2001 he was professor of early Christian and Renaissance iconography at ICART (Paris). Tristan is one of the authors named in Jean-Luc Moreau's 1992 manifesto and anthology La Nouvelle Fiction, alongside Hubert Haddad, Georges-Olivier Châteaureynaud, François Coupry, Jean Levy, Patrick Carré, and Marc Petit. All seven founding members of this literary movement share a literary heritage of German Romanticism, the English Gothic novel, speculative philosophy, surrealism, spiritualism and the oriental tale to explore Romantic themes such as the soul, fate, the world of dreams, myth and invisible realms.[1]

All of his archives (manuscripts, books published and translated, audio and visual documentation, reviews) is available at IMEC.
