"He was the father of Leon Daudet" this should be verified I believe he was his uncle. Ericd

The fact that he was his father is mentioned in http://fr.encyclopedia.yahoo.com/articles/ma/ma_1996_p0.html olivier 12:58 26 Jun 2003 (UTC)


Rough and ready mini-clean up done[edit]

I was a bit shocked at the state of this article when I dropped by looking for basic info on the man. Quite a bit of the text I had to remove because of irreparable WP:OR and WP:ESSAY, weasel words and opinion. What remains lacks both personal and literary info and what there is lacks citations and refs for many of the assertions and analysis. Worse still it is missing literary criticism especially re. comparisons to Charles Dickens and description/discussion of his contemporary popular acclaim/success compared with any subsequent examination. It also appears to have been a bit too carelessly translated from French in many places so I cleaned up the grammar and re-wrote a few lines where I could. The article really does need taking in hand entirely by an expert. So I've templated it and now will do my best to find such a one in a project or somewhere. Wish me luck!
