Originally from Brittany, he spent his childhood in La Réunion, then became a professor of French literature in the Middle Ages. He published many medieval texts in modern French, such as Tristan et Iseut (1900), La Chanson de Roland (1921), Les Fabliaux (1893). He was elected member of the Académie Française in 1920.
