One of Anatole France’s most mysterious and overlooked works, ‘Clio’ (1900) is a fascinating collection of historical tales that represents a huge digression from the author's better-known stories.

In ‘Clio’, France delivers five tales from European history, spanning from the distant myths of Ancient Greece to Napoleon Bonaparte and the Revolutionary Wars.

Throughout this collection, France delights readers with the breadth of his literary ability, using plays, poetic language, and prose to carve his pen through history.

Fans of historical tales and Anatole France’s previous works will be delighted with this unique collection of stories.

François-Anatole Thibault (1844 – 1924), better known as Anatole France, was a French journalist, poet, novelist, and Nobel laureate for literature. Spending much of his early life in his father’s bookshop, France quickly rose to prominence as a respected author of over 25 works.

A French Classicist writer with a style reminiscent of Voltaire and Fénélon, France’s work has a strong preoccupation with scepticism and hedonism. He is best remembered for his classic French novels ‘La Rôtisserie de la Reine Pédauque’ (1893) and ‘Le Crime de Sylvestre Bonnard’ (1881). France’s works have had a historic legacy, and he is recognised today as one of France’s most prominent authors.
