Definitions of CONSTANT GUEROULT
Sort: Oldest first
A French writer of sensational fiction; born in Elbeuf, Feb. 11, 1814; died at Paris, Nov. 29, 1882. At first engaged in trade, he wrote novels in his leisure, and soon made his fortune. "The Stranglers of Paris", written partly in collaboration, is his representative effort; but "The Beggar of Toledo", "Captain Zamore", "The Depths of Paris", and "The Marcellange Affair" are powerful tales of the sensational order, and gave rise to a school of imitators.
