Alphonse Daudet (Nimes, May 13, 1840 – Paris, December 17, 1897) was a French writer of novels, plays, short stories and poetry. His most famous work is probably Les Lettres de mon moulin (1870), a collection of short stories. He was the father of the writers Léon Daudet and Lucien Daudet. Daudet was friends with the southern French writer Frédéric Mistral and joined his Félibrige, a society of writers and poets who wanted to breathe new life into Occitan, the old southern French language. Daudet was less known during his lifetime as a Provencal author than his friend Mistral. Daudet is nevertheless called the ambassador of Provence and streets and schools are also named after him in the south of France. While Mistral is not read that much anymore, Daudet still enjoys much fame. Several of his books are frequently used in education. Daudet has stayed with his family a few times at the Montauban castle in the village of Fontvieille in southern France. That is why Fontvieille has a statue of Daudet and several shops are named after him. Although there were several mills in Fontvieille, despite his Les lettres de mon moulin (“The letters from my mill”), he never lived in a mill he wanted. He is buried on the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise in Paris.
