Jean Anouilh
FameRank: 6

"Jean Marie Lucien Pierre Anouilh" was a French dramatist whose career spanned five decades. Though his work ranged from high drama to absurdist farce, Anouilh is best known for his 1943 play Antigone (Anouilh)/Antigone, an adaptation of Sophocles' classical drama, that was seen as an attack on Philippe Pétain/Marshal Pétain's Vichy France/Vichy government. One of France's most prolific writers after World War II, much of Anouilh's work deals with themes of maintaining integrity in a world of moral compromise.
