Courteline Georges
(1858—1929)

Courteline Georges (1858—1929)

French writer. His prolific humorous and satiric works include sketches, plays, tales, and novels. Bourgeois attitudes are ridiculed in his comedy Boubouroche (1892, tr. 1961); official red tape is satirized in his sketches Messieurs les ronds-de-cuir (1893, tr. The Bureaucrats, 1928); and the pitfalls of justice in the courts are hilariously exposed in Hortense, couche-toi (1897, tr. Hold on, Hortense, 1961) and L’Article 330 (1900, tr. 1961).
