Encyclopedia > Jean Jules Jusserand

Jean Adrien Antoine Jules Jusserand (February 18, 1855 - July 18, 1932) was a French author and diplomatist.


Born at Lyon, he entered the diplomatic service in 1876 and became in 1878 consul in London. After an interval spent in Tunis he returned to London in 1887 as a member of the French Embassy. In 1890 he became French minister at Copenhagen, and in 1902 was transferred to Washington, where he remained until 1925.


In 1920 he took part in a diplomatic mission to the Second Polish Republic, during the Polish-Soviet War.


A close student of English literature, he produced some very lucid and vivacious monographs on comparatively little-known subjects:

  • Le Théâtre en Angleterre depuis la conquête jusqu'aux prédécesseurs immédiats de Shakespeare (1878)
  • Le Roman au temps de Shakespeare (1887; Eng. trans. by Miss E. Lee, 1890)
  • Les Anglais au Moyen Âge: la vie nomade et les routes d'Angleterre au XIVe siècle (1884; Eng. trans., English Wayfaring Life in the Middle Ages, by LT Smith, 1889)
  • L'Épopée de Langland (1893; Eng. trans., Piers Plowman, 1894).

His Histoire littéraire du peuple anglais, the first volume of which was published in 1895, was completed in three volumes in 1909. In English he wrote A French Ambassador at the Court of Charles II (1892), from the unpublished papers of the count de Cominges.
