Paul Adam (December 7, 1862 – January 2, 1920) was a French novelist.

Career overview[edit]

Adam wrote a series of historical novels that dealt with the period of the Napoleonic Wars and their aftermath; the first installment in the series, La Force, was published in 1899. Together with Jean Moréas, he co-wrote Les Demoiselles Goubert, which was a novel that marked the transition between Naturalism and Symbolism in French literature. His novel Stephanie, which appeared in 1913, argued in favour of arranged marriages as opposed to those founded on romantic attachments.

He was born and died in Paris.[1]
